DIY expert Donny Sheridan answers your questions QHOW do we get rid of a brown water stain left on the ceiling? - Michael Saunders AWATER WATER WA stains leave brown tide-marks as they dry out. If there is no evidence of damage or bulging plasterboard, then apply a stain block, allow it to cure and give the whole room two full coats of emulsion.
