Scratched/scuffed textured vinyl dashboard

Hi all got myself in a bit of a pickle, I ran out of my usual vinyl cleaner so bought some car pro inside. Now I didn't know you could dilute it so I used it neat on the dashboard but I found it a bit grabby when buffing it off but saying that the dashboard was hot with the weather.
I normally use a standard short nap microfibre towels for my interior with no problems but I think because I had to rub a bit harder to buff the vinyl cleaner off I think I've rubbed the dash with the edge of the towel let's call it the sharp part of the towel as there not edgeless.
These scuffs/scratches are only visible in strong sunlight Carnt seem to see them when the dashboard is shaded.
This has slightly marked the dash which has caused me a few sleepless nights thinking about it.
Now the question is,am I stuck with these slight scuffs/scratches or is there something I can do to remove them.
I have read all sorts on the Internet/forums but unless I know a full proof workaround I'm scared of making the dashboard worse.
Any advise on this would be of great help.
Thanks again Kev

This is one of the tips that I read about, now do I rub lightly along the scuff/scratch or in circular motions
Do I lube up pardon the pun or is water enough.
When I get chance I can post some pics showing the dashboard.

Many thanks Kev

Took some pictures this morning but you can't see the scuffs/scratches at all so I guess that's a good thing.
I think they only come out to play on sunny days and today certainty isn't a sunny day so I'll take some more pictures when that day comes.

Cheers Kev

Hi all I've posted a picture of the dashboard,it's still a little hard to see them so you might have to zoom in.
Have a look see what you think.

Cheers Kev
