removing water stains from ceiling

My 97 class C motor home has a rubber roof and the front driver side started to seperate from the molding.

I didnt notice it at first but with the very heavy rains the past 2 months and my motor home is parked in my driveway with a slight down hill slant (the front is pointed down the driveway) water builds up in the corner and has seeped under or over (dont know) the seals.

I have since applied Etrabond tape on all the seams and hopefully it will stop.

I now have water stains on the carpet like ceiling covering. I did try some Oxy clean stain remover and it worked for about 2 days and then the stains came back.

Anyone have a solution

Strong solution of hydrogen peroxide, sprayed on with a dedicated bottle , cover everything you don't want white. I've seen this work in a 5er that the stains had set in for years. But slight re-occurrence of the stain required a second application. Could be the same for your Oxy.

X2^ use 50-50 water and hydrogen peroxide, spray on and do not blot, just let it dry, repeat as needed. It will help.

We used the hydrogen hydroxide and it work just great...put it in a spray bottle and repeat as necessary, no blotting...we also used it on the water stains of the front curtains...sprayed the h2o2 as the curtains were hanging on the wash line....saturated the water stains then put the curtains in the washer on the gentle cycle...no more stains!!

We have done exactly what Bruce C did, with one exception. We used 50-50 household bleach. Our ceiling was recycled plastic called Ozite.

I used OxyClean and it worked for me.... it did take multiple applications over a couple of days, but it worked and it came out a perfect match with no discoloration. It did not reappear
