If it's veneer you are most likely out of luck. Veneer is so thin that in most cases cleaning and bleaching can do more harm than good. So be careful.
TSP will darken the wood and oxalic acid will lighten the wood. If you have both types of stains it might be better to darken the wood.
In the end paint might be your best choice. Or new veneer.
