    You are going to need to clean or neutralize your ceiling, too. If you have a flat ceiling surface, you are golden. Use a sponge mop or a long handled paint roller with a new roller to dip into vinegar to clean the ceiling. If you have a really tall peaked ceiling, consider hiring a pro, or have lots of help with safety as a focus. If you have popcorn or other texture with peaks, you can still use vinegar and a roller, but put down drop cloths because the texturing may crumble and fall off. If you repaint, use Kilz as the basecoat possibly the top coat. Best wishes 😇💞

    No. You can also use bleach and water. Squeeze most of the liquid off the sponge before holding it over your head. Did you have a fire? Your insurance might cover the cleanup.
