Default Best way to remove light scuff marks on dash?

While removing and replacing the safety inspection sticker on the windshield of my 2013 GS, the tech at my AD lightly scuffed the dash.

I don't like the marks and am looking for the best way to attempt to remove or mitigate the scuff marks. Does anyone have any idea what method to use or what to use? I was able to remove some scuff marks on the bottom of the driver's side door panel where I kicked the panel with my shoes getting in and out but am not sure if this would work on the dash.

Thanks much!

There may be no way to remove them...are they on the nuluxe portion or the vinyl portion?

Thanks for the response. They are on the "front" edge farthest away from the windshield just behind the white stitching closest to the seats. I am not sure if this is the vinyl portion or not.

I use this and it'll remove scuffs if it's not really a scratch. It'll make it blend more with the rest of the dash.

I might give this a try as long as it doesn't add any undesired sheen. I'll try and get a pic and post it as well. By the way, I think the dash is not exactly vinyl but that "nuluxe" or whatever it's called. I have a 2013 luxury edition black interior with linear espresso trim.
