Scrub over the scuff marks with either a pencil eraser or a damp cleaning eraser. Continue scrubbing until the majority of the scuff residue is removed.

Moisten a cleaning rag with rubbing alcohol and scrub gently over the concrete floor surface. Continue until all traces of the scuff marks are gone.

Rinse the cleaning rag under clear water, wring out and wipe over the concrete floor to remove any leftover traces of residue or alcohol, and allow the concrete to air dry.
