Default Black Shoe Scuff Marks on Lower Door Panels

Curious what our members use to get rid of black shoe scuff marks on the lower door panels? Had that problem on an older used C5 that I never could get cleaned off. Iím now looking for a C6 with the lighter 2 tone interior (gray or tan) and many have that problem. Tried various solvents and cleansers on my old C5 to no avail. Actually had to spray paint the areas with a matching color. Would like to avoid having to do that in the future. Comments?

I recall trying that with a nylon scrubbing pad without success. Also tried using lighter fluid and that 409 cleanser. Was afraid to try anything stronger or more abrasive.

Simple Green, a terry cloth rag and lots of elbow grease has worked for me.

You should probably stop kicking the door panels

q I've used it and would recommend it. Be aware that it is an abrasive(a pretty mild one), so don't get too carried away with using it or you risk dulling the finish a bit.

I didnít. It was purchased used. Wouldnít have happened, at least on the drivers side, if Iíd been the original owner. Unfortunately, some others are not quite as careful.

On cashmere interior, it works great! The plastic parts, that is, not the leather. Be gentle, though.
