Thinking of using several colors of fabric dye to create an imperfectly perfect ceiling. Taping everything off and creating a "stipple" non-pattern aka French wash using transparent dye in spray bottles or sponges in different colors.
Open to ANY ideas that have been tried, no leaks now just lots of water stains, thanks

We use to get carpet cleaner guys to come in and clean the stains they sprayed some cleaning agent on it then use the steamer to clean it off and it was like new again just a thought to try before going to extreme

I am interested in this as well.No more leaks just annoying brown rings in carpet ceiling. I found a product called "Simply Spray" and there is a video on youtube of a guy spraying his floor mats on a lexus. Might be worth a look. I have also heard of the heat from a cleaner service steam machine would loosen the adhesive and cause carpet to sag. However id be willing to risk if you have had luck that way.
Thanks!

There doesn't seem to be a good answer that everyone gravitates to, I'll let you know how it works out. I've thought also of using a spray adhesive to overlay a very light weight linen material, thanks

Thanks...that sounds like a good idea if cleaning it doesn't work.
Good luck

You can try this formula 1/3 bleach 1/3 hydrogen peroxide and 1/3 distilled water in a spray bottle. Just spray tell damp and let dry. Make sure your MH is well ventalated. Worked great on mine

I just went through this with a stained carpeted ceiling. Tried different cleaners and methods to no avail. Then was recommended to "InstaGone" by a friend who had the same need. It worked gteat!

Spray on (don't saturate), wait ~30 minutes, spray again (from a different angle). Repeat as needed (especially bad spots I did maybe six times). No scrubbing whatsoever. Use lots of ventilation and cover furniture and such underneath. Let the ventilation continue for a day or two to disapate the smell.

I bought it from QVC - avalable elsewhere as well. Instagone Multi-Purpose Stain Remover w/22 oz. Bottle

I had brown stains from the roof air not being tight enough. Someone on this forum recommended oxyclean spray. It worked like a charm and ceiling looks brand new. Good luck.

I have used the 1 to 1 Clorox to water formula on the ceiling and Oxyclean on my front curtains . Both work well.

Brother-in-law just went through this. Stains on ceiling from leaking air conditioner. RV tech he uses told him to mix 1 part bleach to 10 parts water, cover everything up underneath the area and spray on as a fine mist. Don't scrub or anything just let it stand. Let it stand over night. He went back out next day and it worked like a champ!
