    Stop :wackit: in the car for starters, or maybe stop aiming for the headliner. Who do you think you are? Peter North? :rofl:

    Usually a damp cloth sprayed with an APC (all purpose cleaner) will remove headliner stains. Just don't over-wet or use anything harsh, it can damage the fabric or cause it to pull away from the roof.

    I have pretty good luck with the woolite/water mix and then sucking it dry with a shop vac.

    dot. done it myself on a few headlines with good success. If its not coming off, try a soft brush and a spot remover.

    Don't wet the headliner. Wet the damp cloth. Push outward beyond the stain to "thin it out". Don't blot it...you'll create water spotting. Once you push the stain around with your damp cloth, immediately follow up with a clean dry one to "transfer" the stain into the cloth.
