Spray on some Oxi-Clean and dab/lightly rub with a rag.

I would suggest a 40/60 mixture of dish soap and purified water mixed in a spray bottle. Spray headliner with mixture and dab, not rub, head liner. The last thing you want is to affect adhesives holding the headliner fabric up. Saggy headliners are my biggest pet peeve.

You could also check out autopia.org. I'm sure you can find the answer you're looking for from a professional on that site.

I've had good luck with Blackfire's interior cleaner (no major stains).

Thanks guys. I bough some blue coral fabric cleaner and I got the stains out with light dabbing and a hair dryer.

I used 1Z einszett All-Purpose Cleaner: Blitz that i got from Detailersdomain.com
Sprayed a VERY SMALL AMOUNT to headliner and wiped immediately in one direction. This worked wonders but be careful as too much could cause the adhesive behind the headliner to become saturated and start to peel.
