I agree, stanley steamer and anything like it that uses extremely hot water or steam will loosen the headliner. They are only glued in place and it will cause the glue to release causing sags and such. also if they get too close to cabinets made of press board, it will damage and release the woodgrain paper they are covered in. Big NO NO!

we used a bissel , little green machine , carpet spot cleaner (NOT STEAM)
and a carpet cleaner in the lukewarm water , spray on , suction off immediately , repeat as necessary , only $89 for the machine and cleans carpet , upholstery , truly a great utensil in the motor home

I just bought a little green machine, got it at Walmart mine will use hot
water, don't know about steam. It was less then $100, I haven't tried it
yet. I'm going to try in the bedroom and see how it does or maybe the closet
ceiling first. I have that oxite stuff on my ceilings and my cabinets are real
wood. I have an old American Eagle, would like to clean my head board and stuff
if it works. If not going to redo the fabric on the valances and things anyway,
I'm sure its dirty since this is a 92.


I also bought the recommended cleaner.


My carpet cleaning guy cleaned the carpet but wouldn't touch the headliner, said their insurance company wouldn't let them.

I have used the little green machine with cold water and half recommended cleaner on my ceiling with success. I just did spot cleaning only.

Well I tried the foam cleaner(Resolve) this weekend. Not very happy with results, sort of made it stand out more. I'll try the green machine sometime.

Had black water stains in previous coach. Used an oxyclean mix, dabbed it on with a sponge then sucked it out with our carpet cleaner. I would avoid using bleach, unless you want the ceiling pure white where you clean. You can use bleach then neutralize with vinegar so it doesn't continue to bleach the color out why? Oxyclean does a great job.

A few folks on the escapees discussion forum reported success using the Little Green Machine handheld model.

Some owners have reported having success in removing the water stains in carpet headlining using hydrogen peroxide applied with a spray bottle.
