To get rid of a scuff mark on a floor, just re-scuff the same mark with your shoe. I don't know why it works, but it does. Weird, but true.

This is a quick and easy way to remove both scuff marks and tape residue from linoleum or vinyl floors. Black Scuffs on vinyl floor

We had these terrible scuff marks on our vinyl flooring and no mater how many times we moped and scrubbed the area, nothing ever made the scuff marks go away. A friend of ours shared this tip with us and it worked like magic!

Simply spray the area with some WD-40, let sit a minute or two, then rub out with a rag. Can of WD-40 Floor Scuffs Removing Scuff Marks Clean Vinyl Floor

As a custodian, I use a tennis ball attached to a broom handle. A little rub and the black mark is gone.

Nail polish remover on a rag or tissue or cotton ball works great!

And if none of those work, use either Goof Off or like our Grandmothers did, a dab of lighter fluid on a rag. Charcoal lighter fluid works fine.

The safest and easiest way to remove them is with WD40! It takes very little and wipes up easily with paper towels. Good luck!

After trying the rubber eraser and a white rubber shoe (neither of which worked), the nail polish remover worked like a charm!

Nail polish remover worked like a charm. We tried baking soda and hand sanitizer as mentioned above but the acetone-based remover we tried worked immediately. Thanks!

After installing vinyl plank flooring, there are shiny shoe sole prints that show in the reflection of the new floor. I mopped with warm water and vinegar and it did not make any difference. The instructions repeatedly caution not to use any but the mildest cleaning solutions. Help!

I came by this method of getting those nasty scuff marks off my kitchen floor purely by chance.Boy, does it work,and with hardly any elbow grease! I sprayed "Goo Gone"on the scuff marks and let it set just a few minutes,then rubbed it off with an old rag. That's it! It does leave the area a little slippery,so I spray it with my kitchen cleaner to keep any one from slipping. Judy

To get black marks off floor, put a few drops of eucalyptus oil on a clean cloth and the marks should wipe off with no problems.
