Cleaning Mud Stains on Seat

So the year before last I took the hyperstrada off-road a bit. I have the Ducati racing seat. It's very nice btw. Unfortunately, I got quite a bit of mud on it and never worked hard to remove it. I washed it again today with just a nice auto exterior wash/shampoo. Didn't seem to help much.

Anyone recommend something? Obviously would want something that would not adversely affect the seat or its looks.

Thanks! Photo:

Last time I had stains like that on a seat, I used a medium bristle toothbrush, dry, and then took a cleaner of some type to it. Took it out pretty well.

Have you tried a spray polish/ cleaner? I prefer Honda Spray Cleaner & Polish. Use it on the whole bike after I wash it.

Not sure if it's same material as stocker. Never had any stains that didn't wash out on mine, but I always have a coat of polish on it.

Use Dawn. If that doesn't work use Tide, because the enzymes will help.
