Sneaker Streaks

Hi, this is my first post so TIA for your help. I bought a 2014 Grand Cherokee diesel last month and love the car. Runs great, it's comfortable, and gets good "gas" mileage.
My first problem is the streaks left on the door by my white sneakers. I am paying closer attention now so I stopped hitting the door panel when I get out, but I cant get rid of the ones that are there. I've tried a vinyl cleaner, ps21, which made it less white but did not remove them. I am going to pick up a detail brush, maybe I have to get a little more aggressive with the agitation part of the cleaning. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

Pick up a pack of Mr Clean magic erasers.

I get dark sneaker tracks on the light/frost interior every now and then, and they work nicely.

Sometimes water works, but I typically moisten one with a tiny bit of Woolite spray carpet cleaner to get the tougher stuff off, then wipe again with another eraser with just a bit of plain water.

Another one moistened with Windex with the ammonia is sometimes necessary to get rid of shoe wax marks.

Re: Sneaker Streaks

Thanks guys- I did the mr clean and it did much better than anything else. I also put some 303 protectant and that I think is helping to prevent more streaks.

A good clear, non-skid liquid floor wax also works.
Wipe on with a rag to avoid a glossy look.
