A ceramic coating should be washed with an automotive specific shampoo, that is pH neutral, contains no wax, and is ultra-suds producing. Most detergents (like dish soap) are high alkaline or +9 on the pH scale.
There has also, can you use soap on a ceramic coated car?
Tip #2 – Always Use a pH Neutral Car Shampoo with No Wax Added. Ceramic Pro products are going to harden to the strength of quartz. A glass coating will also block UV rays – like that of a paint protection film. ... Washing your vehicle in shade can be difficult for many car owners.

Method 2: Polishing off ceramic coatings The only universally accepted method to remove ceramic coatings is mechanical abrasion. Since the ceramic coating is a physical layer, polishing is the only surefire way to remove it 100% and expose the clear coat underneath.
After the coating has cured you are able to apply a carnauba wax over the paint. Be sure that the wax is strictly a wax, and does not contain any "cleaners". ... It will also give protection to the paint. Carnauba waxes generally need to be applied every 3 to 4 months.
In many cases, ceramic coating your paint is absolutely worth the price. It provides great protection against contaminants and minor scratches, all while making the vehicle much easier to clean up. Coatings aren't for every car or owner though. It really comes down to how you use and care for it.
What is ceramic coating? When you get your car professionally ceramic coated, the detailer will apply a layer of ceramic-based chemical polymer solution that adheres to your car's paint and adds protection against the outside elements like water, dirt, and other debris.
On one hand, you can opt for a high-quality do-it-yourself Nano-ceramic coating, invest a little elbow grease, and produce good results. Or, pay for a professional to prep and apply a professional-grade ceramic coating – with sometimes longer-lasting results.
Claying for Removing Ceramic Coatings The second method for removing ceramic coatings is using clay. This method involves using a clay bar with limited slippery stuff, which increases friction and may loosen up the adhesion of the coating to the clear coat.
It simply just wears away and you're going to see water beading and the dirt shedding qualities decline over time. There's also no worry if you get a rock chip (don't confuse this with protection against rock chips), there's no risk of the entire Ceramic Coating being compromised.
Hydrophobic Spray Adam's all in oneceramic spray waterless wash is a quick and easy way to clean, enhance gloss and provide lasting protection to your vehicle's paint, windows, taillights, and even wheels! This premium formula is safe for all surfaces and provides a gentle, yet effective car polish for any vehicle.
Finally, you're probably asking yourself “How often should I maintain my ceramic coating?” The answer is a bit more complicated to answer in simplicity since each vehicle is different than the next. In most cases, we recommend revitalizing your coating in some shape or foam every 2-3 months for optimal results.
12-24 hours after your vehicle was coated it can be exposed to water. If wet before that time water should be blown off or safely wiped off before it dries on the surface. No water should touch your vehicle period for at least 2 hours in optimal temperatures.
