I have a 98 Safari Sahara 30ft DP . After heavy rains in June , I had a tiny leak around my t.v. antenna and now I have some brown and blackish water stains on the fuzzy ceiling fabric . It's either from the glue in the plywood or the glue that the ceiling fabric is glued on with .I have re-caulked the roof , especially around the ( no-longer used ) t.v. antenna .

What can I use to get rid of the water stains on my ceiling ?

There are a couple of things you can try. I have had good luck using a spray oxyclean rug product. Spray on liberally, use a microfiber type cloth and rub the oxyclean into the fabric real good. Let it sit. Better? Might need a couple of applications. If the stain is really bad, you might need to use bleach/water, be sure to cover everything to protect it from the bleach. Protect yourself too, eyes, hands, etc. Might want to work it in with rags instead of spray. I would start with the oxyclean - can be bought in any grocery, WM - good luck

I had a leak on my shower sky light that left stains on the light colored lame carpet ceiling in the shower compartment. My wife mixed bleach and water in a spray bottle and dab cleaned it, its very hard to tell where the stain was now. Worked pretty good.

When our antenna had a leak we used Spot Shot from Walmart. Spray it on dab it off with a damp cotton towel. May need to do it a couple of times. Make sure you rinse the towel often.

The Spot Shot comes in a spray bottle or a spray can. Don't buy the spray can it don't last very long. The bottle will last a long time for the same money.

Good luck

There is also some professional carpet cleaner sold at Sam's club that could remove the spot in the fuzzy fabric. Shout is also a good stain remover. If it is mold though, you are in for a real challenge and may either just have to replace the fabric to get rid of the mold stain or cover it up.

Yes what klm says.. Some recommend Clorox cleanup but be careful with the bleach it might dissolve the glue and cause more problems.. Also on the TV antenna. if it is the crank-up and turn around, stem has rubber gaskets, so spray some silicone down from the top to soften up the rubber for a better seal.

A bit of Oxyclean and hot water in a spray bottle. Spray generously; wait a couple of minutes. Use a wet/dry vac to suck off the solution, or a carpet cleaner extension.

I had a stain and was advised to use a paste made of peroxide and baking powder. Put the mixture upon the stain and let dry over night. Vacuum off the next day. WORKED FOR ME.

X2 - worked great. Just don't let it get too wet to saturate the glue etc.
