Despite my best efforts and padding, some luggage shifted when I had to stop short due to slow traffic in the rain during my trip this past weekend. Now I have a bunch of small whitish scuff marks on the soft plastic of the cargo area. I have ecru interior so the plastic is a tan or beige color. Is there anyway to cover these up? In my old Sequoia it was black and I used Back to Black or a similar product, but this is tan. I thought of Einstatt Cockpit Premium but have not tried it yet for fear it might make it worse. Anyone have suggestions? Minor I know but I am a detail freak although inexperienced at it and want to keep the GX as nice as possible.
Thanks for reading and any advice.

The plastic is just the type that gets ruined, I haven't thought of a solution yet. I am kind of thinking of lightly sanding the spots with some mineral spirits on the sandpaper. I used to work in a furniture factory and that is how they trained us to fix gouged and scratched plastic much like the stuff in the back of our cars.
Do you soak that Magic Eraser in anything? I have never used one although I did hear a horror story about a lady who used one to get the bugs off the hood and headlights of her new Jaguar. I tried the Einstatt , did not seem to help much. That is my #1 gripe with all my Toyota vehicles - that soft plastic that scratches if you even touch it.
I have the ecru interior and scratches in the cargo area too. Haven't found anything to remove the scratches and light sanding takes the shine off the plastic. I've had success with the magic eraser on marks, but not scratches.
