How to wash a ceramic coated vehicle the right way


Washing a ceramic coated vehicle requires some special care and attention to ensure that the coating is not damaged during the cleaning process. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to wash a ceramic coated vehicle the right way:

Choose the right cleaning products: It’s important to use a car shampoo that is specifically designed for ceramic coated vehicles, a Ph neural car soap without any waxes such as 3D pink car soap. Avoid using harsh or abrasive cleaning products that can damage the coating.

Rinse the car: Start by rinsing the car with a hose or pressure washer to remove loose dirt and debris.

Wash the car: Use a wash mitt or microfibre sponge to apply the car shampoo to the car, working in small sections at a time. Be sure to rinse the mitt or sponge frequently to avoid scratching the surface of the coating. Use a gentle, up and down or across motion starting from the top and working your way down to the more dirty areas of the car, be sure to use a different mitt or sponge on dirty wheels so the paint does not get scratched.

Rinse the car again: Once you have washed the entire car, rinse it thoroughly with clean water to remove any remaining soap residue.

Dry the car: Use a microfiber drying towel to dry the car. Avoid air drying, as this can leave water spots on the coating.

Apply a ceramic coating booster (optional): To help maintain the integrity of the ceramic coating, you can apply a ceramic coating booster after washing and drying the car. This will help to restore any lost shine and provide additional protection.

It’s important to note that you should avoid washing a ceramic coated vehicle in direct sunlight or in extreme temperatures. This can cause the cleaning products to dry too quickly, leaving residue or water spots on the coating. It’s also important to avoid using automatic car washes, as the harsh chemicals and brushes can damage the coating.

By following these steps and using the right products, you can ensure that your ceramic coated vehicle stays clean and protected for years to come.
