Default Remove spots from headliner?

Recently my rear sunroof drain came out of it'* hole in the roof and spilled some water onto my headliner. Along the rear of the headliner is now a line of discoloration or water mark, who knows what it is. I was wondering if there is any way to remove this, or make it look better?

recovering the headliner is the only real solution.

You mean replacing the entire headliner????

It'* an incredibly small spot, the headliner is only a year old, it only happened for one day.

It'* about 3-4 inches long but only 1/4 inch wide at most. Just a long line, basically.

Yeah, I was basically asking if there was any way to clean it, maybe even at a professional place if so. I don't feel like replacing a nearly new headliner.

I would think if you tried using one of those steamers that might help to get it out, or try spraying carpet cleaner on it, that also may do the trick, hmmmm, thats all I got for now. Just some thoughts.

You might want to find a detailing shop that has an extractor and get a cost from them.

An extractor is a steam cleaner on steroids.
