Our 2012 Fuzion 315 has some yellow spots on the ceiling in the bathroom and bedroom. When I checked to see what was going on, it is the putty they used to fill the staple holes.

we just did our ceilings in the 5er. We also had the yellow spots. It is nicotine stains and cooking film together. I had tried most name brand cleaners, no luck. Then tried Awesome from the dollar store.. I bought the spray bottle and used a sponge. It all came off! The ceiling and the wooden strips are white again. It was the putty they used to cover the staples the manufacture used. This is the first time I have used Awesome, and all I can say is WOW..what a cleaner..

Imagine what your lungs look like. Film cooking just has to stop.

I have used liquid lighter fluid for years. It won't hurt the surface and it is good for many other things. I don't mean lighting a cig.

For nail hole putty that has discolored, you might try a pencil eraser. An electric eraser will work best, but any white eraser should work too. Ideally you want to remove all the putty except what is actually in the nail hole. Maybe try some scotchbrite pads if you need to cut the putty faster.

I used the white spray shellac that is made for ceilings in your house. You hold the can upside down and spray it. Perfect match.
