I have worn hardwood floors and made the mistake of using a Magic Eraser to take off scuff marks, big mistake. Now I am looking for suggestions to cover the cloudy white spots.

I think if they are scuffed spots you can rub a walnut on them. I've heard that it covers scratches, so hopefully it will work for you. Good luck!
Could it be that the Magic Eraser removed the wax? Maybe the floor needs to be stripped and re-waxed.

There is a faded white mark where I used a Magic Eraser Extra Strength on my client's wood floor. I want to spot fix it with Bona High Gloss. Can I do that? I'm trying to keep this as simple as possible to fix.
I would try rubbing mayonnaise on it first. Make sure it is mayonnaise and not salad dressing or not low fat mayo.
I am not sure how to fix it, but I think what has happened is that you have removed the surface on the flooring. Magic Eraser is an abrasive, and doesn't leave marks. It works by "sanding" off the soap scum or stain or whatever. It would be similar to a bleach "stain" - not a stain at all, but a removing of the original color. You will have to somehow recolor the area. Because we don't know for sure what type of flooring, it is almost impossible to give advice.
