Mild Detergent: A small amount of dish soap or a gentle cleaner mixed with water works well. 

Water: Lukewarm water for rinsing. 

Soft Bristle Brush: For stubborn stains or grime in crevices. 

Microfiber Cloth: For drying and buffing to a shine. 

Non-Abrasive Cleaner: For tougher stains, use a plastic-safe cleaner recommended by the locker manufacturer. 

Cleaning Steps Remove Debris: Start by removing any loose dirt or debris from the locker's surface with a dry cloth or soft brush. 

Mix Cleaning Solution: In a bucket, mix a small amount of mild detergent with warm water. Avoid using harsh chemicals as they can damage the locker's finish.

Additional Tips Preventative Measures: Place mats or trays inside lockers to catch spills and reduce cleaning frequency.

UV Protection: If your locker is outdoors or in direct sunlight, consider applying a UV-resistant coating or cover to protect against fading and degradation. 

Regular Inspections: Check for any signs of warping, cracks, or other damage that could compromise the locker's integrity.
