Help to clean up Cedar Floor Boards

Im a complete novice. I have been renting a place for a few years and my dog has scratched the floor boards. (Its not too bad but noticable). Now Im giving notice and need to clean it up. I need a quick fix, I dont want to sand them back or anything like that. All I know about the floor boards is that they are Tung-Oil Cedar Floor Boards.

Any help or ideas would be greatly appericated.

Floor should be cleaned with solution of 2 cups white vinegar in 1 gallon water, cleaning and drying a section at a time with an old towel before moving on to the next section. For scratches, a quick touch up with Pure Tung Oil thinned 1 to 1 with thinner on a nylon pad or stockings. Then let dry for a day. If floor has been waxed or has cleaning residues, all will have to be removed before doing touch up or applying new surface finish.
