Q: I have a small dog that has left scratches on my hardwood floors in my foyer. I have butterscotch colored hardwoods, but some of these scratches have left visible marks I suppose where the coloring has been stripped (the scratches are lighter than the floor as a whole).

Do you have any tips for removing scuff marks? They seem to be only on the surface of the floor, i.e. not into the wood itself.
Shoe scuff marks on wood floor

Cleaning off scuff marks
