Scuff marks behind driver and passenger seats

Do you guys have any recommendations for removing scuff marks on the plastic panels behind the front seats? When you have kids as rear passengers, their feet don't touch the ground, so their shoes always rub up against the back and scuff it.

I was thinking of just a wet towel, but would like your thoughts.

thanks.

Try Mr. Clean's Magic Eraser. Go easy on the stuff though, but it should remove the scuff marks effortlessly.

Wet towel does it every time. Works on the sides of the front doors where people push the door open with their feet too.

I have the tan interior and I haven't found anything yet that will take out shoe scuff marks.

I can help with that

Bug and tar remover works like a charm.
Work small areas at a time, and keep it off the leather or carpet.
Spray it on the surface or a towel, depending.

Me too! I tried the Mr. Clean sponge and it didn't work either. I regret getting the tan interior everytime I look at those marks on the backs of the seats, the doors, and the door sills. ARGH!

It kind of pisses me off because I've owned other cars with tan interiors and never had this problem before. Most of the time a wet cloth or Armor-All was all it took. I guess I'm going to have all my passengers take their shoes off before getting in my car.

I use the magic eraser too, it works for me. But I have black interior.

I just got my car, will have to post pics (if I can ever figure it out). I also found someone in SoCal to do Venture clear bra and he also did the headlamps and foglamps. Do you guys think it's okay to protect them or bad idea??

BTW, Shimshimhada, those oranges really scare me, And to think I USE to love eating oranges, now I see them stare at me. Did you carve them yourself?
