Never use bleach on white furniture. The "white" color that results from the bleach will seldom match the original color of the couch.

How do you get a bleach stain out of a couch?

Go get yourself some Heinz white vinegar or even the generic stuff; it doesn't matter which. Soak a clean white cloth with the vinegar and start dabbing/blotting the stain. Keep doing this until the fabric won't hold anymore vinegar in the immediate vicinity of the bleach stain. Rinse with cold water and repeat.
