Remove water stains on your ceiling
Does the water stain from a leak you had three years ago still haunt you every time you look up? What if we told you that a homemade solution would solve your problem and make your ceilings look clean again? First things first, make sure the underlying problem has been resolved before you focus on removing the stains. Once that is dealt with, the fun can start! A homemade bleach solvent with one cup bleach and three cups of warm water will fade the stain and make your ceiling look good as new — all for the affordable price of bleach. You can even take it to the next level by adding primer and paint to make your ceilings a bit brighter — the choice is yours.
