cleaning white cushion chairs

So I have white cushion chairs in my dining room and there's some stains on them. I used cleaning product on the top of one and it created a sort of 'border' stain where you could see where the spray happened versus the rest of the chair. One of the attached pictures shows it.
My thinking is to do a full all out cleaning on the whole chair- as in get a bucket and brush, fill said bucket with cleaning solution and then paint it over the white cushion fabric from top to bottom.
Here's the question, assuming it's a good idea, what cleaning solution should I have in the bucket? Would hot water and say half a cup of bleach do?

The biggest thing to remember when cleaning stains is that they need to be blotted. The stain and the cleaning solution needs to be drawn out of the material. I wouldn't recommend bleach.

Typically a small amount of white vinegar and a spoonful of dish soap in a spray bottle with warm water make a good cleaner. Woolite makes a good furniture cleaner and there are similar ones.

Yeah, either get an upholstery cleaner in a can or spray bottle or you can buy small, handheld cleaners (much like carpet cleaners that you rent), made for upholstery or small carpet stains.
You can also have a pro come in and do it for you.
Water in a bucket with bleach would be a no-no.
