Smile water leak stained ceiling

While driving our 2001 34' Caribbean in a nasty storm, we found ourselves taking in water all around the bedroom ac unit, even had water in the vent. Leak has been fixed but now we have unsightly water stains on the cream colored carpet ceiling. Does anyone have a way to get rid of the stains. Thank you for any help you can give us.

50/50 clorox and water in a spray bottle. Might have to do the whole section but will be even color. Only other is to strip and replace

The ceiling is a bleached carpet to begin with. A mixture of 80% water and 20% bleach will bring it back to like new. You MUST hold a large towel under the spot you are doing and DO NOT get any drips. I have done dozens and never had a problem.

Do a search on Oxy clean or oxiclean and you will see many posts.

Oxy-clean works great. I had a water stain on my off white ceiling carpet
and it is completely gone.

X2 on the oxy-clean. Then blot with a clean towel, I also used a Bissell Little Green Machine to scrub and suck the cleaner out ..

We had a W/I Sightseer with Ozite ceiling. Water stains were fixed with a spray bottle and 50-50 mix of bleach and water. Spray liberally and leave entirely alone until the next day. Repeat as needed. Don't rub or blot.

Ozite is recycled plastic. Don't know what material yours is. Use a towel as ga traveler says.
