I used white vinegar and baking soda mixed to a paste. Rub it in and let it sit for 30 minutes or so then remove. Need to put down a drop cloth.

Wal mart sells a product called insta gone. It is unbelievable. It makes the ceiling look like new. All the stain is gone. You can order it online.

My ceiling has something like a looped short pile carpet in white. The thing that's had any effect so far is Folex. It did get rid of a lot of the minor staining but only helped some with the darker stains. Good stuff to have around for regular carpet and upholstery stains for sure.
I hadn't heard of Instagone until this thread. Vinegar, bleach, and the usual household stain removers had no effect. Nor did Blue Magic or Blue Coral cleaners, both of which I've had good results with on car interiors.

We have sprayed a water/oxyclean solution and then used our carpet shampoo machine vacuum hose to rinse and dewater.

+1 on the Oxy-Clean recommendation. I heat up a pint of water and then dissolve a 1/4 cup of Oxy-Clean into it, put it into a spray bottle, and spray stains. Works on ceiling fabric, cloth shades, upholstery, etc.

(Mostly works on organic stains. Rust stains, not so much. The sooner you use it after mixing it up, the better.)

My Safari had a white carpet like ceiling, I sprayed bleach and all water stains disappeared.

Forgot Oxy-Clean. That was the first thing I tried on mine and it leads my list of things that had zero perceptible effect.
People seem to get different results from different things. My staining is I believe wood stain from the roof leaking water long before I owned it and the roof was repaired.

I tried different things and I was mistaken in my previous post "getting old " I used a paste made from baking soda and peroxide. Think like was said depends on what the stain is from on what works best. Good luck.

Same here......BUT be very careful! In my case, Oxyclean worked so well that the boss said "now that that spot looks soooooo good, why don't you do the rest of the ceilings in the coach?" "Ill fix dinner once you are done!"
