Stained Ceiling

I have a 97 Bounder and the ceiling has a small stain from a vent leaking water. Is there some type of paint or something that can be used to bring the white color back to it?

Was just reading a thread with the same question earlier today.

A '97 Bounder has carpet on the ceiling. How are you going to use paint to fix it?

Use a sponge and a spray bottle of a weak detergent and water mixture. The stain usually comes from the glue used in the luan and other wood products in the ceiling. I've done this many times with great success.

I've found "Resolve" carpet cleaner works fairly well on our ceiling fabric.

I have used oxyclean with excellant results. vacuum the area to remove any dry powder stains prior to treatment. Mix oxyclean in a spray bottle, spray it on, dab it- but do not rub it as rubbing will effect the nap of the fabric and it may be visible after it dries. Let it dry. repeat as necessary.. If you start at the outside of the edge, the stain will not spread.

I hope this helps.

Woolite Oxy Deep carpet cleaner. I've used on two motor homes now with good results. It may take several applications, let dry, vacuum and do again, but keep at it. Do like Chuck says.

The Woolite keeps you from having to mix up a solution and comes in a spray bottle.
