Please advise, used Magic Eraser on Wood Floor and it left slight white mark

please help, i used magic eraser on my client's wood floor and it took the finish off I guess. Now there is a slight white mark on all the area's I tried to get the scuffs off. (see image attached).

Is there anything I can do to fix it, like use Murphy's Oil to blend back in??? Something simple please/home remedy.

You should call to any roof expert and he will tell you what will do with it.

Nonya's floor scuffs

Unfortunately your guess is probably right. Magic Erasers really are great. and they truly seem to work like magic. However, they can take the finish off hardwood floors. These sponges are actually made from melamine foam, an abrasive cleaner. Its the same melamine in all of the DIY furniture but when melamine resin cures into foam, its "fibers" become almost like a really fine sandpaper on stains. But the melamine foam literally pulls the dirt that has been loosened into the open spaces and traps it there (similar concept to microfibers but abrasively). Its great for most stains and scuff marks, but unfortunately that same abrasive action can take finish off hardwood floors.
