I've got an '06 Outlook that has stains from old leaks (that have been fixed) on the ceiling. Does anyone know how I can restore the original white color of the ceiling's carpet-like fabric in those stained areas?

You might do a search using stain removal as the words you are searching for. There has been a lot of discussion on this topic in other areas of this forum.

I have had success in removing stains from the ceiling by mixing 1/3rd bleach with 2/3rds water. Shake it up and using a small sprayer, spray the stain lightly (don't soak it) and then let air dry (don't blot it). This removed the stain for me. I have the "off white color ceiling in my MH. Just don't soak it or blot it. I did have to air out the coach for the day afterwards to get rid of the bleach smell which you will have after the treatment. Others will have other suggestions and what to use.

Hope this helps.

I've heard that oxyclean works excellent.

Hot Shot carpet cleaner and Oxy clean spray both work well.

RESOLVE spot carpet cleaner works well. For tougher stains, repeat cleaning after 24 hours.

I have found that using a paste made of baking soda and peroxide when left on over night removes the stain. Just vacuum off the powder in the morning and will leave the area looking like new without any rubbing.

When I took possession of my used Dutch Star the ceiling fabric had similar stains. I went to Wal Mart and bought Scotchgard Oxy Carpet Cleaner

The stains disappeared. I've had a few small leaks since and still use it.

We even removed the front white curtains and soaked them down with the cleaner. All the water spots disappeared and the not so white curtains were white again.

Capture, a carpet stain remover, works real well. Capture is available at Lowes or Home Depot. Spray with the spray first then rub in the powder with a brush provided. After it dries, we used a Dirt Devil hand held vacume and the stain comes out.
