There is one really obvious way to remove a simple floor scuff mark that is always overlooked.
Remember when you were in school and the janitors were psychotic about “only gym shoes on the gym floor?” I always wondered if they were off fuming somewhere every time a school dance was held in the gym. Were they off pouting and cursing in some distant supply closet? These are the kind of questions that just roll about my mind all the time… even when I’m trying to concentrate on important things. Is that healthy?
How to clean scuff marks:
This tip is from Mr. Neighbor Nancy, my true love and a career janitor.
“Well, you could get down on your hands and knees and “erase” it with an art gum eraser, but why make so much work out of it?
Wearing any rubber soled shoe, except black, erase the scuff with your heel or toe, whichever is more comfortable. That’s it.”
My husband says new black rubber soled shoes leave a new scuff mark, but once you wear them down a bit, they work, too.
