Water stains

Does anyone know how to remove water stains from ceiling fabric?
I loaned my 20 year old MH to my son-in-law for 4 months and it poured down for two weeks straight . He discovered a leak which he caulked but not before the ceiling was stained. I’m going to have All Seasons RV in Wenatchee WA do an overlay of the roof but would sure like to remove the stains.

Welcome to iRV2. I've used a strong solution of hydrogen peroxide to clean the fabric roof in my coach.
Cover anything you don't want white. Start with a small area , spray on and allow to dry , vacuum, re-treat if required.

Another solution I've heard of is OxiClean. Not had the need to use on a headliner myself, but I've used it on other stains with good success.

Thanks, I'll try the peroxide first and it that doesn't get I'll go with the OxiClean. Lots to fix since I got it back. No ones fault, just getting old like me. Thanks again.
