Be careful not to soak the ceiling carpet or rub to hard. I had water spots also. I rubbed to hard and used water with a small amount of bleach. White carpet ceiling. After doing it, the carpet glue ran through and I had even a bigger problem. I landed up replacing the carpet in the bathroom ceiling. It leaked around the sky lite.

You probably can't remove just a spot stain. You'll need to clean the whole panel where the stain is located. From there, you'll have to figure out if you need to clean other panels.

It may help to know what your ceiling is made of, carpet?, vinyl?, other? When all else fails, call a dealer or your manufacturer and ask them what their cleaning crew uses, these folks have some amazing products!

Here's what I do to mine every time a water stain shows up, and I still haven't figured out how or where it's coming from either. If you got a carpet cleaning machine with a hose hand attachment, just us it as you would on a floor carpet, except it's upside down. I spray on some cleaning solution and then use a small hand held brush to work the clean solution in, and then with the hand held hose i just vaccum it right off. The carpet needs to dry really well after your done cleaning.

x2, but spray a hot Oxyclean solution on first with a small spray bottle.

X3 with the Oxcyclean and carpet cleaner hand vacuum attachment. By sucking out most of the water after a few minutes you reduce the risk of the glue letting go and it dries an lot quicker. Certainly worked for me.
