warm water and dish soap works on minor dirt scuffs. i guess it all depends on how bad the mark is.

I have used JML Magic Eraser with good results (got mine from Wilkinsons). It is fine for vinyl toys and I have seen others on this board recommend it.

You can use it dry for small scuffs or get it damp and gently wipe off bigger marks and dirt. I tested it on some old toys and found it will remove paint and ink if you apply too much pressure.
