Home Its a remover in a spray bottle. I found it at Lowes. Reasonable success. Let it sit and then I used a softish bristle brush followed by a towel. Not perfect but 90% better......

I have used a commercial product, but the name escapes me. Was clorine based and a breathing hazard. Sprayed it on, leave it sit overnight, scrubb it off. Bad stains took multiple applications but it removed all of the easy and 90% of the worst.

If you do a search here you will find multiple threads and multiple solutions and products.

Also looking for something. I though water was coming in where I had installed and removed solar panels, but, on re-caulking and further inspection, determined it was coming in through the joint where the exterior wall and roof meet. Had not looked at that for a while! Fixed that today!

I used laundry Spot Remover on my slide trim upholstery water stain and the upholstered, chair and it did fair, but it was a lot of work!

If it a fabric headliner, then buy "PROXY" at a janitorial service store. Just spay it on (follow instructions) leave it (DO NOT scrub it).Some times a second application is required if the stain is really bad. The stain will disappear. I've used it a couple of time and it works great.
