Cleaning marks off SIB

What should I use to clean the material on my SIB? After a few weeks of regular weekend use I have accumulated several marks (not caused by rubbing or scuffing) on the surface of the material. I have tried cleaning it off with soapy water but that doesn't work and I am not fond of the idea of using any kitchen cleaners or bleach.

We've found the worst bit to be the air-floor, as the material is almost like a cheese grater - any small blob of dirt, if you rub it with anything, ends up mashed into the tiny holes in the material. Scrubbing a bit with a domestic pan scrubber gets there, but shreds green bits off the scrubber.

I've since got a couple of large non-slip doormats to put down on the airfloor to keep the dirt off. I considered a nice sheepskin rug, but couldn't get one the right size.
