How to Bleach Away a Water Stain

No one wants to have to repaint his or her entire ceiling. This takes a lot of time and effort. If you’re short on time, money and don’t have the time for a whole ceiling redo, you don’t need to worry about it. There is a trick to removing water stains. Here is what you should do:

  • Spray the spot with 10% bleach and 90% water
  • Wait a day or two
  • If it’s an older stain, try mildew remover

Often, the stain will be gone by the next day. You can use this trick on textured and flat ceilings. Of course, remember to protect your walls, floors and your eyes.
