Dark Brown water stain: headliner

My 2005 Tropi-Cal T370 apparently has a small roof leak and we have a dark brown stain in the headliner right at the forward end of the galley slideout. Any suggestions as to how to clean this. I've tried toothpaste and a mixture of Hydrogen Peroxide and Dawn, and most of it has come out, but not all.

You might try full strength Hydrogen Peroxide. I had a stain and it worked for me.

try 50/50 water and bleach. Make sure you cover anything under the spot you are cleaning so you don't have bleach marks on the carpet or seats. I have used this method on popcorn ceilings. Just spray it on and wait several hours for it to work and reapply if needed.

I had good results with oxyclean. Blot it on, let it work in a few minutes then use a damp sponge to clean up. Rinse sponge often. My roof leak in the same area, it was the sealer around the satellite box.

Belgen has a good formula! The best that I have used is 1/3 water 1/3 Hydrogen peroxide and 1/3 bleach. Protect arias you do not want sprayed and apply with a spray bottle. Let dry and reapply if needed. My carpet ceiling was stained thruout the bedroom and bath due to a shower skylight leak and no more stains

Put Oxyclean in a rug shampooer and apply to the carpet-like ceiling with the upholstery nozzle, wait a couple of minutes and use the machine to suck out the liquid along with the stain color.

I use Little Green machine with bleach and water.
Brand name products are just expensive bleaches

I had the same problem, what I did was mix 50/50 Water and clorox bleach in small spray bottle and carefully sprayed stains. It worked for me
