Unhappy Water Stains on RV ceiling

Has anyone found a way to remove, camouflage or just plain the water stains from leaking on their RV ceiling?

My ceiling has alot, some very bad, of water stain from leaks I didn't know I had. I want to redo the whole ceiling in the rv and no one seems to know what I can do to hide them.

Any ideas would be great. Living under stained ceiling. Mary

Have you fixed the leak? Is the stain on carpet or what material?

If your ceiling is paintable, there is a product made just for this purpose, it is called Kilz, you can buy it at any hardware or Lowes type store. You can even have it tinted.

Yes, I have fixed the leaks and the stains are on the ceiling. I am afraid if I paint the ceiling it will be STIFF to the touch and look that way too.

I use a Bissel little green machine carpet/upolstery cleaner. It has a small about three inch head with brushes. They also make one with a power head that spins just a little biger. The stains may come out using this cleaner. You should try a small area first with a tooth brush. Use the whitening tooth paste. brush it on and waite about 5 minutes to see if it takes the stain out. If it does then you have bleached it out. That means a bleaching agent and soap will do the trick. Look at the different rug/uphoustry cleaner that bleach and pick one. Good luck.
