How To Properly Wash Your Ceramic Coated Car
Washing your car properly is important to maintain not only its appearance and protect its paintwork, but you want to maintain and protect your newly applied Ceramic Coating. Here are some steps to follow to wash your car while also avoiding new scratches on it:
- Gather the necessary supplies: You will need a bucket, car wash soap, a soft wash mitt or sponge, a separate bucket for rinsing, and a hose or pressure washer.
- Rinse the car: Start by rinsing the car with water to remove any loose dirt or debris. Be sure to use a hose or pressure washer that has a nozzle with a wide spray pattern to avoid concentrating the water in one area.
- Wash the car: Fill a bucket with car wash soap and water, and use a soft wash mitt or sponge to wash the car. Work from the top down, washing one section at a time. Rinse the mitt or sponge frequently to remove any dirt or debris that has been picked up. Avoid using dish soap or other household cleaners as they can strip the wax off the paint.
- Rinse the car again: After washing each section, rinse the car with water to remove any soap residue.
- Dry the car: Use a soft microfiber towel or chamois to dry the car. Avoid using a regular towel or cloth, which can scratch the paint.
- Optional step: Spray Sealant: If you want to give your car an extra protection and shine without harming your ceramic coating, you can apply a coat of a Spray Sealant after washing and drying at least once a month. We recommend our Silica based Sealant or CarPro Reload.
By following these steps, you can wash your car without scratching it and maintain its appearance for years to come.
