Ceiling stain - best way to remove?

We had a small leak in our Aspect which left a water stain on the fabric headliner. What is the best procedure for removing the stain? Anybody have a "secret recipe"?

This is for the "carpet" type of ceiling material.

Use Resolve and a scrub brush. Scrub it well, then rub it with a white terry cloth that is moistened somewhat with Resolve.

You can also use Oxi-Clean if you wish. They will both do a good job.

You could try SHout and the applicator attached . WOrked for me last week when an old stain from 3-4 years ago finally got to me and I wanted it gone.

Hydrogen Peroxide works on some stains - Test a small area to be assured that it doesn't take the color out of the fabric.

I had a stain were a lesk from dish. I use clorox spray the stain and it went away, If you rub some of the ceiling material it will get fur. The fur looks worse than the stain.

Another option is to use one of those Bissell "Green Machine" carpet spot cleaners. We use one frequently for cleaning up doggie "barf" in the S&B. Hot water/cleaner mix in the tank (we use a pet clean-up detergent), spray on from the hand-held brush then scrub the wet area while the machine sucks the moisture out. Repeat as needed.

we used the peroxide with a spray bottle. No scrubbing, just kind of kneaded and dabbed, moving the cloth a lot to make sure always using a spotlessly clean area.
we would let it totally dry overnight, then back at it the next day. We must have redone the procedure ten times, but there is absolutely no trace of any stain or "fuzzy" looking area on our ceiling.
Gentleness and patience paid off.
