Dis-colored Popcorn Ceiling


I had a small roof leak that trickled down and got onto ceiling and dis-colored an area about 1ft sq. I am wondering if there is something that can be sprayed on the ceiling to remove the discoloration? I am afraid if i paint then it will really stick out like a sore thumb painting in just that one area. I have heard that a mixture of bleach and water could possibly work? anyone heard of this? I am open to any suggestions!

First make sure the leak has stopped.

Kilz is a excellent primer for water damage. You will most likely have to repaint the whole ceiling to get it to blend correctly.
