    best way to care for ceramic paint coating?

    the ceramic coating was applied about a year ago with a maintenance apply 2 months ago, are there any "quick detail" sprays should be used after washing that help preserve the finish?
    regards

    Use CarPro Reload or equivalent quality sio2 sealant. It will restore the hydrophobic properties of the coating.

    Wash in a well shaded area - without any direct sunlight. If your water contents have a high trace of PH, use some sort of filter (this will help with any spotting/watermarks). Rinse the car. Use a foam gun - I use Honeydew foam soap, it has a low levels of PH and is safe for waxes and sealants (most important). Let the soap suds sit for a about 5 to 10 mins. Rinse. Dry with a blower. I rarely ever scrub - Ceramic Pro is great.
