Ceramic coatings do a lot to protect your car’s paint job from bird droppings, tree sap, acid rain and other environmental hazards. Ceramic coatings are hydrophobic, meaning they shed water easily and keep contaminants from sticking to the surface. They are like teflon on your frying pan, only much, much more durable and better looking!

Two Bucket Wash

The two bucket wash is one of the best ways to keep your ceramic coated vehicle looking its best. This is because it reduces swirl marks by using a separate bucket for soapy water and another for rinsing your wash mitt between sections of the car. It is also the fastest way to wash and protect your car. It uses the power of silica – a natural compound that gives your ceramic coating its hydrophobic properties – to produce a smooth and brilliant shine. After you have used this method, use a clean waffle weave microfiber towel to dry your vehicle. This will eliminate bacteria, grime, and other contaminants that are difficult to see with the naked eye. And most importantly, it will ensure that your ceramic coating remains in good condition for the life of your vehicle!

Rinse Only

Using harsh cleaning products can damage the coating, so you need to use pH neutral, wax-free shampoos that won’t damage the surface. Also, remember that aggressive car wash soaps can reduce the hydrophobic properties of your coating, making it more likely to attract dirt and grime. The best way to wash your vehicle is with a foam cannon, which mixes the perfect amount of water, air and soap to create thick foam that’s easy to spray all over your car without scratching. You should also use a microfiber wash mitt and a premium, lubricating soap to wash your car safely and effectively.


As with all paint protection, a ceramic coating is not water-proof. It can still be stained by mud, tree sap, dirt pebbles and other materials that don’t stick to the surface. Thankfully, this can easily be prevented by a simple wash and rinse every few weeks. It can also be helped by applying specialist ceramic coating maintenance sprays such as Boost Sprays, SiO2 Ceramic Spray or DIY ceramic coating maintenance spray. Drying is the final step in a wash cycle and it is crucial to get right to prevent damage. Make sure you are using a clean microfiber towel, a clean wash mitt and clean buckets for the final stage of your wash!
