I have your answer. First, the area is ruined. Look around the house in the closets for an area of carpet you can cut from there to use on this ruined spot. If you do find some carpet from a closet, then you'll have to cut that ruined area out in the shape of a perfect square a little bigger than where the bleach hit it. Use something square ro trace around it. Now cut than exact size and shape out of the CLOSET AREA (use a hidden corner of closet to cut the carpet out of) carpet. Then replace new carpet piece I to the one you just took out. Make sure the nap is going the same way. Use double stick carpet tape to make it stick. Fluff the carpet fibers around the edges of the new square to make the new carpet look like it fits.

If the new piece of carpet is cleaner because it's been hidden, use carpet cleaner in a can to clean an area around your older carpet so the newer carpet piece will fit it pleasingly to the eye.

That's a bummer, the best I got is to put dye on it or replace the carpet in that room.

Cover it up with a rug or a piece of furniture

You could go back to the store and get a cut if the same carpet. Cut bad spot out. Would think a pro would need to do the patch work. Other than that, put a throw rug over it or piece of furniture.

Get artistic with the bleach on the rest of the carpet......you just might become a famous carpet designer.
