What is the best way to remove scuff marks?

Scuff marks can be difficult to remove but Spic and Span® liquid can usually get the job done. For best results pour Spic and Span® directly onto a moist sponge and squeeze a few times to distribute the cleanser into the sponge. Rub the sponge directly onto the scuff mark with a moderate amount of pressure. Repeat the entire procedure until the scuff mark is gone. Then rinse the sponge and wipe the spot clean. When cleaning wood floors, always test a small area first.

Where did the Spic and Span brand originate?

The “Spick and Span” name was used by the product’s inventors, Elizabeth MacDonald and Naomi Stenglein in 1933, to describe how spotless their home looked after cleaning. Unable to register the name as a trademark, they changed the spelling to Spic and Span© and founded the “Spic and Span Products Company,” selling their invention door to door.
