Ceiling Stain Removal

Hello everyone...I am fishing for feedback on best practices for water stain removal from our Monacos ceiling.
Had a few vent leaks during heavy consistant rain here in Jersey. Once I am sure they are no longer leaking I want to try to get some staining out.
Carpet cleaner ?
Laundry detergent and hot water?
Upholstery cleaner?
What do you think?
Let me know thank as always !

Try Griot's interior cleaner, good for fabrics, carpets, vinyl, leather. I used on our carpets and it worked great. Very easy to use.

I have used steam, the stuff came in with water, so it might go away with water as well... try it out before using anything that might take the colour out. Simple steam-mop and a soft brush, result was good.

A bleach solution worked on our prior coach with no damage. The nappy fabric is synthetic and no color was bleached out of it....on mine. Just take care not to let it drip onto anything valuable beneath where you spray. After spraying it on, I scrubbed lightly with a fingernail brush in different directions to expose more of the length of the fibers down to their base, and re-sprayed a little as I went along to be sure the entire fiber was treated. Disclaimer: your results may vary. But it worked perfectly for me.

On some stains the wood backer the fabric is glued onto has leached into the fabric, and they do not always come out from what I have seen and heard. I have read that just using too much water to clean out odors can cause the stains to get larger. Let us know your results please, I would like to know if anything worked for you.
