Remove scuff marks from vinyl or patent leather high heels with nail polish remover. You need a cotton ball and a soft cloth. After removing the scuffs, apply petroleum jelly to keep the marks from returning.
- Wet a cotton ball
Apply nail polish remover to a cotton ball or soft cloth. Choose a cloth that isn't abrasive but that can withstand a firm polishing motion.
- Buff the high heels
Rub the nail polish remover into the scuff marks. It may be necessary to apply pressure to remove the scuffs completely.
- Apply petroleum jelly
Spread a thin layer of petroleum jelly over the outside of the shoes to prevent new scuffs. Wipe off excess jelly with a soft cloth.
