You can use heat gun. Just don't overheat the surface; make the plastic pliable enough and use your thumb to flatten the scuffs.

Mix baking soda and warm water then rub it on the surface, use a towel to remove the excess, repeat as needed .

If it's a simple scuff, water on a towel and a little elbow grease will take it off. I get them in the footwells, and that's all I use. If the plastic is actually damaged, cleaners won't make any difference.

Windex seems to work well for me as well as the post above.
