Water stains on fabric couch

We received couches from my in laws and they warned us that even water will stain the fabric...and sure enough, it absolutely does! It's like a woven fabric, not a swede or anything. I left a slightly damp towel on the couch one day and it left a big stain. It's dry, has been for a while now, but I've been afraid to even attempt to treat it due to the staining it's succeptible to. Any tips? It looks terrible!

Do you know the label that says do not remove under penalty of law? Read it! Maybe it will tell you something. If not, I would try something that contains oxalic acid.
