I had an overflow in my laundry room that dripped down on to 3 of my ceiling
tiles in my basement dropped ceiling.
It caused a light brown stain. Is there a way to cover it up or should they
just be replaced?

But does it come formulated to match what is already on ceiling tiles? The stuff
I'm talking about is made specifically for ceiling tiles, and comes in a few
shades, so you can get a very close color match. Professional building
maintenance people are all familiar with it. Ceiling tiles finishes have
particular characteristics. If it isn't labled as "Kilz for ceiling tiles" then
it is the wrong thing to use.

things they do with the ceiling tile is to wash it with bleach to get
rid of the brown water stains on the ceiling tiles..this might work for
You will unlikely ever remove these stains, but try some KILZ (it's a
paint primer of sorts). However, if it does work, you'll most likely
have to paint the whole ceiling. It's probably easier and cheaper
just to replace those tiles, IF you can still buy them.
