Scraped Laminate Floor

Seeking some advice on how to repair a scrape on our laminate floor. There are some scrapes made by a wooden chair (see attached). The flooring is no longer available. Should I use a stain paint or a stain retouch marker? Sand it first?

Please let me know what you think. Thanks.

I'd suggest one of Minwax's colored wax pencils. Fill the gaps, then use a knife blade to clean out and shape any wax that got into the grooves. Denatured alcohol and a q-tip can help clean up the edges if you happen to "color" outside the lines.

You could also use a colored furniture marker or stain pen, but if you put it on and it stains the fiber core material too dark it's pretty hard to remove it. The wax is a safer bet, it's not going to change the color that the wax already is.

It's vinyl so not much is going to stick to it for long. Some Sharpie permanent markers, or similar, to touch up the edges so it will be a little less noticeable!

It's a fiber core laminate. The cheapest of the cheap.
