Default Embroidery Brightening

My Intimidator has the Earnhardt logo and its looking dirty white was a bad idea for a headrest embroidery color. How do I clean this and make it look like new without bleaching out the other Colors or damaging the leather? I heard Peroxide might work but I was worried that it might bleach it out or damage my seats. Any Thoughts?

I have heard of using Dawn dish soap it will pull the grease and dirt out but that is the only thing i have heard of that wont damage the thread or the leather

Dawn and a scrub brush would probably work. I don't think I'd use peroxide. If you do I would do a small test spot. Maybe a spot remover like the tide to go pen would work too.

This is what I would use. The only thing I can add is use the BLUE dawn. It doesn't contain any additives for hand softening, etc.

This is what I use you wont be disappointed.
