solvent for seat stain

You know when you spill some solvent on a material seat and the solvent moves whatever dirt was already in the material so that when it dries it leaves a ring of noticeable stain? Well I've got one of those...on light tweed seat upholstry. No clue what the dirt on the seat actually consists of.

- had it professionally cleaned, didn't get it out
- sprayed a 10% dawn dish soap soln on it and scrubbed forever with a hard nylon bristle brush, didn't get it out

My last idea is just to coat the entire seat with a solvent so that maybe the stain would spread out so you wouldn't notice the edges. Tried 100% denatured alcohol without much luck.

At this point I'm about to give up on it. But thought I'd write in to ask if anyone has possibly another solvent suggestion that might spread the stain out like I'm hoping for. I'm avoiding acetone b/c of the foam inside, and MEK or lacquer thinner, or anything with petroleum in it.

Any suggestions?

Use Original Goop Hand cleaner.
The White stuff.
Nothing else.
Just a little on rag is needed.
Follow up with clean water.

ive had decent luck with the "carpet cleaner" can that has the
integrated yellow or green bristle brush built in to the spray
area on the can...
