Removing Scuff Mark on Leather Shoes

Scuffed Leather ShoesWhen I was a small child, I remember my mother raiding my crayon box to color in nicks and scuff marks on her brightly colored high heels. Well, these days it may be colored leather tennis shoes, a leather vest or fancy cowboy boots, but the idea still works. (Especially if you have a box of 64 colors!)

First heat the area with a blow dryer, that way the color of the crayon actually melts into the leather. Finish by buffing with a soft cloth or soft paper towel.

Here is a great way to cover up those scuff marks on a pair of shoes that you still love! Cover the scuffs with a "Sharpie" or any permanent marker in a shade that matches.

IF they are NOT a cloth or suede you could try a pencil eraser and if that doesn't work try a Mr Clean Magic Eraser (or the generic equivalent). Rub very lightly with the damp eraser though, because it can remove the color as well.

Try Dawn dish detergent. It got off ink marks on my leather purse.

I would try black shoe polish. Just a dab and a buff. You know, the waxy kind in the little round can.

You could try using an indelible pen, like a Sharpie.

I've had success using an ink eraser (not a pencil eraser) for small scuffs on my leather shoes. Use a light touch, don't rub too hard.

Hi,

You could use the leather re-colouirng balm to restore the colour and hide the scuff marks. This product is available here - www.furnitureclinic.co.uk/Leather_Recolouring_Balm.htm

Removing the scuffs depends on what the shoes are made from! I was always getting black scuffs on my white nursing shoes and the only thing that worked was scrubbing with a soft scrub product. A few weeks ago I was searching the Web for ways to prevent scuffs and I found a product called SKUFF.

I ordered the gloss finish and it was easy to apply to my shoes after cleaning with the enclosed towelettes. It's been two weeks now and the couple of tiny scuffs that showed on the shoes were easy to just wipe off with a wet rag. The shoes are still a beautiful white!
