We have a relatively new couch that is the color khaki. We came home

She thinks it bleach or toothpaste. Any thoughts? How would we clean
this (*can* we clean it)? Thanks!
If your wife added water and it spread it implies it's treatable with water.

using a hand tool of a wet and dry cleaner or rented carpet cleaner.
After that try acetic acid and again extract anywater you put on .
Hope this helps but if it's not completely out after this get back to the
group and tell us what reaction you've seen

powder into the stained area, allow to dry for 2 hours, then vacuum
using a brush attachment. This will work for most unknown stains--at
least for the one that can be removed. You may want to consider
washable "protectors" placed at the top of the couch to prevent it
from happening again. I'm only guessing the stain may be a hair
