Finally had to bite the bullet and get a new rubber roof installed. I nursed the old one through one last year, but we got a leak in the kitchen area around the roof fan, that created a big ugly stain on the Fabric head liner. The new roof looks great, and now, so does the headliner. I was concerned I would not be able to ever get it clean. I wnet to Wally World, and bought a tub of Oxy Clean. That stuff is absolute fabric cleaning magic without a doubt. It took me three applications using a sponge to do the applying, but the stain is GONE. Not lighter, or just less noticeable, but I mean gone. We had some old stains on our carpet where some interior work was done in the past, and stuff was dropped on it and walked into the fibers. They are GONE also. I had some water marks on the wall near my sky light wear it had leaked before. I had scrubbed at them before with regular cleaner, but they didn't come off. Now they are GONE. If you have never tried this stuff before, I recommend you go buy a tub of it. It is terrific stuff.

Glad to hear you were so successful at restoring your headliner. We have also had good success with Oxy Clean on quite a few stains on carpets and other fabrics. It works better on some stains than others, however, but it works so well on so many things it's always the first thing I try.

Oxy Clean is also excellent for removing tea stains from pitchers and mugs. The plastic pitcher for our iced tea maker was a mess before we soaked it in Oxy Clean.

I did the same thing in the old coach. Made it look as good as new. Took a spray bottle and sprayed iton and wiped it off with a towel. Made the entire headliner look nice. Back of the fabric high back chairs where your head hits, will clean them up. Test it out on things so as not to ruin anything.

Machman72, what concentration did you mix the Oxiclean to in order to clean the headliner stains? I have a stain around the TV antenna crank from water entering around a broken boot on the cable for the ant.

Thanks
