Stains on Paws and around Mouth

Holly is mostly white and has stains around her mouth but now she has developed redish brown stains her paws and some on the white fur near her paws. I noticed that many of you have white or cream havs and I don't see any on your photos. Is there anything I could do to remove it? I understand that it is from her saliva, is there something I could give her to alleviate it.

I'm not sure on the mouth/beard stains, could it be from food? or food coloring in the food? Paws, that could also be environmental or from where she walks, you can trim the hair around the paws up to where it doesn't drag on the ground and that might help.

I know I just try to wash anything off as soon as possible, and I always wash her paws after a walk, because she is on our furniture and its just gross not to..she's used to it and comes straight to the sink when we get home,

On the light Havs if your soil is acid you need to wash or at least wipe them off after walking in wet grass. I thought one of Mistys paws was turning pink...turns out she has red on that paw (she's white/red). We have very acid soil here. Also Bio groom white shampoo.
