My portable dishwasher's casters got stuck and made scuff-like marks on my floors.  Is there anythng I can do to remove them?

RE: Caster Marks on Laminate Flooring
Did they leave a black residue or did they actually scratch the floor?  If it's just a residue, there are several things you have around the house that might work.  First, try rubbing a little WD-40 on them.  Be sure to clean the area to remove the WD-40 afterwards as it can be very slippery.This might wipe them right away.  If that doesn't work, let me know and I can suggest a few other things to try.

The marks are not black.  There more like rub marks.  I don't know anything about these floors.  Just moved into the house.   They don't look like scratches, I hope!  You can only see them when the light hits the floor just right.

Hmm...if there is a residue to be removed I can tell you several methods to try.  If the surface shine has been scuffed, and has dulled in these spots, you may be able to use a laminate polish to shine them back  up but it probably won't look perfect.  Did you try the WD-40 yet?  I would start there.

I used the WD-40 on the rub marks and it worked.  Not perfect, but acceptable.  Thanks a lot for your advise.
