Re: Cleaning Scuff Marks From Door Plastic ?

my Dodge Intrepid has carpet on the bottom section of the door panel, I think that is a better idea than a plastic panel that shows every scuff.

WD-40. Just used it after searching the web. Works like a charm.

Re: Cleaning Scuff Marks From Door Plastic ?

Google the hair dryer trick....it works.

Only way to remove a scuff (just like on paint) is to remove a small layer of paint. Back to Black works, but it's temporary. I make a point not to scuff mine but the wife and her hooker heels tend to do a beating on the passenger side.

Re: Cleaning Scuff Marks From Door Plastic ?

Those suggestions may work for surface scuffs but I don't think anything will if the plastic itself is scuffed.

3m Skin, decal or plastic dip it soon to protect the paint.

Re: Cleaning Scuff Marks From Door Plastic ?

My 2015 was free of scuffs until I let my wife drive it for a few days and now the lower door plastic is covered with them. I tried scrubbing and cleaning them to no avail. I'm going to try the WD-40 trick.

Re: Cleaning Scuff Marks From Door Plastic ?

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser pad to the rescue. I use Simple Green instead of the product mentioned in the video. Effortless. I agree with the guy in the video, that pad is amazing.

Re: Cleaning Scuff Marks From Door Plastic ?

use a hair dryer. can also use a heat gun, but too much heat/ too hot of heat/ or heat applied too long will make the panel shiny. but a hair drier on high, blowing warm air... wave it back and forth over scuff marks until they disappear.

Re: Cleaning Scuff Marks From Door Plastic ?

I agree with the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Just wet it and wipe the scuffs off. It is that easy! Been using them for years. Just dont use it on a painted or glossy surface!!!

Re: Cleaning Scuff Marks From Door Plastic ?

Be careful with Mr. Clean. It actually removes and scuffs surfaces and is noticeable on dark colors. I wouldn't use it on plastic.

Re: Cleaning Scuff Marks From Door Plastic ?

I found removing the door panel scuff marks on my 2015 GCO impossible. Tried Mr. Clean pads as noted here; warm water and soap, and even WD40. None very effective. Ordered and received my order of MOPAR Leather Cleaner. Used it with the Mr. Clean pad and it worked darn good. Not perfect, but far better than any other method I tried.
