It should be really good for those scuff marks caused by the soles of shoes and even for some light furniture scuffs. You can also take an old tennis ball and use it as a marker in your garage to show you when you're close to running into something in your garage space. Simply take your tennis ball and attach it to a piece of string, then, hang the string from the ceiling in at the point where it will touch your windshield when you dive in.
