Upholstery paint for ceiling

We have a 2014 Cornerstone with brown stains on the ceiling from a water leak. I'd like to try using an upholstery paint to cover the stains. There are several available on Amazon but can't tell exactly what shade of white to buy. I called Entegra but the couldn't help with the color. I can buy a new panel if all else fails. Anyone have info on the feasibility of covering the stains with paint and what the exact color might be?

I don’t know the color, but a 50-50 mix of bleach and water in a spray bottle will take water stains off a home ceiling. I would try that, but I’d do it in an inconspicuous spot first. Don’t soak it let it set for a minute or two at first to try it.

Paint the whole thing and be done with it.

If you paint, it would need a primer in it. Otherwise the brown wil bleed through eventually. Call your local janitorial supplies co. and explain to them your browning problem. They will carry a peroxide base spray on that will neutralize the browning and return it to It's natural color. Much safer than bleach.

Do not paint it. Use Instagone. This stuff works.

I wouldn't recommend it. A stain neutralizer will be enough for a natural appearance.

X2 on the peroxide, it usually works and it's a lot milder than bleach.

Thanks everyone for the help. I used Instagone. It was amazing. The stain is completely gone.

And, for anyone else with this problem, Clorox Clean-Up All Purpose Cleaner with Bleach spray cleaner also works wonders on Winnebago fabric ceilings with water stains. Spray it on and let it dry, no rinsing is necessary.

I used InstaGone on an older Winnie Class C with the fuzzy ceiling material. It did wonders with removing the stains but you need to use lots of ventilation, as the vapors are really bad.

Agree, The Instagone works great. You have to have patience. Spray it on and wait a few hours before seeing the difference. You do need to be cautious because the fumes can be overwhelming if you use too much at once.
