06 E 350 with Stone interior, Sill scuffs?

This is a new purchase. The carpet is really light and the door sills seem to scuff easily. Dealer is throwing in all-season mats. I'm concerned about the fabric trim in the threshold of all of the doors. This looks like a magnet for scuffs and stains.

Are there any sill covers that will protect this trim from wear and tear?

Thanks.

They ARE a magnet for scuffs. I use this to get them off and it is surprisingly effective:

Thanks for the tip. I've ordered the product and hope this "Stone" interior doesn't haunt me.

I was going to suggest the Magic Eraser by Mr. Clean, which these look to be the same product just repackaged. The Eraser you can buy at any grocery store, Target, etc. I have been using these for a while now to get shoe marks off the sills and footwells of my cars.

Watch about the magic eraser on leather. It WILL eat through the top layer/dye element of the leather. You will not be happy and it is not fixable.

Test on a VERY out of the way part first.

True, and also they should not be used on any high gloss part of the car such as wood, paint, the smooth plastic gauge faces, or any chrome plated details like bezels. Use only on cloth or textured plastic, door sills and the like as they do have "teeth". Thanks McBear for addressing my oversight.
