What products and methods should I use to go about cleaning the interior of a car?

My parents gave us their old car- yay! However, its interior is an accretion of two decades of coffee spills, mud stains, tuna fish sandwich accidents, and trips with the now-deceased dog.
I'd really like to have the cup holders no longer be suspiciously sticky and to have the patina of dirt removed from all the seats, but I'd really prefer not to pay to have it professionally cleaned. What's the best way to get it into decent shape myself? Products, techniques, types of sponges or towels? The seats are some sort of fake leather, and the dashboard and other components just look like plastic.
