Solution to mask these scratches

Hi

Can someone please recommend a solution to mask these scratches.

Nothing too fancy, just something to mask it a little bit.

Is that scratch all the way through the top layer, that why it looks blue?
There is no good way to hide those.
I see where you posted on another site where the floors pulling apart.
Remove the flooring and reinstall it so there's no seams showing this time and just replace those damaged pieces.

Cleaning them won't remove the scratches but should make them a lot less noticeable.

It's laminate so you can be pretty aggressive, in light dabs of cleaning agents. Try Methyl Ethyl Keytone. The blue may come up, but scratches will always be there, as laminate is not repairable.

thanks everyone! I didn't realize I can buy separate pieces to replace the old ones, I guess they will be slightly different color but it's better than these ugly scratches

Yes. Once we determined through both your threads that it is really not laminate but a product like Allure, they are replaceable. Do it carefully and cleanly.
