Headliner stain

I have a headliner stain from a leaky roof. The headliner looks like the material that Dashmats are made from or outdoor carpet. I have seen Oxyclean suggested on this forum. Any down-side to trying this?

Spray on the oxy and let sit then dab with a dry cloth.You may have to treat the area a few times but it does work great. Good Luck!!!!!!!

SORRY Forgot to tell you to saturate the area before dabbing this will draw the dark stains out.

I just used Scotchgard OXY spray on a headliner stain from a water leak, since fixed. Just sprayed it lightly, 2 applications, and it disappeared like magic. Made me a happy camper. Mold stain in the shower headliner is a bit more of a challenge, still working on that one.

Another vote for Oxy Clean. My stain took about 4 applications but now there is no evidence of the leak. After I sprayed liberally, I rubbed the area with my fingers to work the Oxy into the stained area. Then after 5 minutes or so I used a damp cloth to blot the area. After each application dried, I vacuumed the area.

Smile Here is another product to try.

Try Spot Shot Carpet Cleaner, on the west coast you can find at Ralphs Vons or Rite Aid. Packaged in spray cans with Orange Cap Blue label. This stuff is amazing, roof stains from water, red wine in carpet, Ball point ink on fabric, Mildew in carpet or roof fabric. It does it all. I keep at least two cans in the coach. Dont leave home without it.

I have had very good luck using a 'little green carpet machine' on stained headliners -- I sprayed a little oxy-clean, worked it in, then attacked with my green monster -- it worked like a charm

Happy travels

Mike

I used the upolstery attachment for my upright carpet cleaner and some spray on solution for carpets. I forget whether I used the oxiclean carpet cleaner or the bottle of pretreatment for the machine. Took it out after an application, wait to soak, and remove with machine. I did have to repeat that a couple of times. A damp sponge, and a bucket of water would prob work as well ( I hae used a spray bottle and a wet dry vac before for cleaning a small area)

This is the stuff I use and it works wonders. I'm a big believer in Groit's Garage products.
