Scuff marks are caused by the material on the sole of your shoes being transferred to your floor. Some scuff marks are easier to remove as are some floor surfaces to clean. Scuff marks can accumulate quickly and detract from the appearance of your surroundings. Removing the scuff marks is important as other dirt is attracted to the scuff mark material, resulting in more to clean up.

Dip one paper towel into some petroleum jelly. Rub the petroleum jelly into the scuff marks. Buff off the jelly and scuff marks with a dry paper towel.

Wet a paper towel with white vinegar. Wash the floor where you applied petroleum jelly to remove the slickness from the jelly, along with any remaining scuff marks.

Dampen a magic stain eraser then squeeze out excess water. Rub the sponge back and forth over any stubborn scuff marks to remove. Rinse the sponge, during the process, so you don't transfer black from the scuffs back onto your floor's surface.
