    Rejuvenate from Home Depot is supposed to work for that..... haven't used it before but have heard from others about it.

    Could try the old type of paste wax and buff.

    How about a crayon? If you have kids you probably have crayons.

    I used to have laminate floors and Old English worked perfectly at covering scratches like this.

      @Kim, you're right! I have used Old English Scratch Cover on my floors for years. It comes in both light and dark wood, and you can mix them for medium! I found the wax sticks and crayons to be difficult to work with (even with a good match the repair is obvious). With Scratch Cover the worst part is the shiny spot it leaves on a matte floor. Use a cotton swab to avoid this! :)

    If this is the "photographed wood" type laminate, be may need to call the manufacturer to get instructions on repair. I have had this type for almost 10 years and do not have a scratch on it. If it is a wood "composite" type flooring, go to where you bought it and ask them.

    Jeanette is absolutely right. If you have no clue about floor because installation was made by previous owner, try the wax crayon from MiniWax on one small area before trying the entire floor, BUT do not use kids crayon, that will strain the rest of your floor as its walked on. I too have hear good things about the Rejuvenate line of products but have not used them, exhort you to google the company, contact them for specifics on what you might use.
