Using toothpaste and an old toothbrush, you can lightly buff away at the scuff mark on your shoe until it completely fades away.

How do you make cloudy plastic clear again?
Soak the plastic item in a small bucket filled with vinegar for five minutes. If the cloudiness continues, sprinkle the item liberally with a layer of baking soda and immerse it in the vinegar bath. This should dissolve the film that clings to the plastic and creates that cloud.
Why does plastic turn white?
When polymers — such as plastics — experience stress, one of the most common reactions is a color change: they turn white at the point of stress. Heating a polymer can cause the amorphous sections of the chain to crystalize. When that happens, the way the molecules scatter light changes and the plastic turns white.
What is the best cleaner for clear plastic?
Lemon oil works to clean clear plastic surfaces without damaging the shiny finish of the plastic.

How do I get my shoes white again?
In a small bowl, mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda, one-half tablespoon water and one-half tablespoon hydrogen peroxide to create a smooth paste.

What removes scuffs from shoes?
