    Shoe scuffs on door panel

    Inner plastic molding on inside of doors is susceptible to those shoe scuffs from getting in and out of the car.

    How do you properly remove them? I tried a damp rag and no luck.

    Is it just dirt or actual scratches? It sounds like scratches since you said you couldn't wash it off. If that's true, then you'd need to sand them off and use a plastic refinisher to restore the luster.

    I've never tried it, but for scuffs (not scratches) I have a friend who swears that the Mr. Clean magic eraser pen thingy works.

    Exactly! So frustrating. I am so conscientious about not doing it and it still happens. In my 05 wr's I never had this issue but I think it was a darker interior on the doors
