 OPTIMUM NO RINSE (ONR) - is a great product to use if your vehicle is lightly dusty, have light water spots on certain panels, or even bird droppings.  No washing needed. Just spray and wipe off lightly. Key word lightly. DO NOT SCRUB. Perfect if you don't have the time to take out all the wash tools.  

Directions: Use a Mix 1/2 - 1 Capful of ONR in a sprayer bottle and fill the rest with water. If vehicle is lightly dusty, use lambswool duster listed below prior to spraying with ONR. 

Simply mist a clean microfiber towel and spray on the contaminated area  (NEVER WIPE ANYTHING DRY). Wipe the area lightly (no need to scrub or wipe hard if your vehicle is coated already) with the microfiber towel. Repeat on other panels if needed.

This product also works and safe for windows, interior, and trims. 

CHEMICAL GUYS HONEYDEW SOAP - A great shampoo product we use with Ceramic Coated vehicles. pH Neutral with no added conditioners or waxes that will counteract with Ceramic Coated vehicles. 


CARPRO RELOAD - is a product we suggest to use about every 6 washes. It will help assist prolong the life of a Ceramic coated vehicle. It's a great added topper on Ceramic Coated cars that will not counteract with our Ceramic Coating. 

Directions: After washing vehicle, shake the spray bottle. Spray Carpro reload when the vehicle is cool to the touch. Never wash your vehicle out in direct sunlight or when the panels are extremely hot

Spray each panel generously and wipe off with a clean microfiber towel using light pressure. 

STONERS INVISIBLE GLASS CLEANER - We like using this glass cleaner in the aerosol can version since it leaves a fine mist evenly and had better results from it. Worth the extra few dollars for the aerosol can compared to the spray type. Comes in a pack of 3 for under $20. We have tried multiple glass cleaners from commercial grade to over the counter. Does not contain ammonia and it is safe for tint. 

Directions: Spray on each window and wipe off with a microfiber towel. 

THE RAG COMPANY DRYING TOWELS - Our go-to drying towels. They are great drying towels after washing your vehicle. Not all towels are the same so please do not use towels that you think may be sufficient enough to use. Using random towels that are not safe for paint may cause marring and scratches. If you are unsure, please contact us.

Directions: After completely washing vehicle, use the drying towel to completely dry the vehicle. No need to scrub or press hard while drying as these towels absorb water quickly. 

THE RAG COMPANY - Commercial grade - All purpose edgeless towels - If you concerned with edged towels when wiping your vehicle, then these are great to purchase and comes in three different colors to help distinguish which towels to use for what. (eg. red: glass, grey: body, and black:

KIRKLAND MICROFIBER TOWELS - Our suggested all-purpose towels. Great soft, plush, and inexpensive all-purpose microfiber towels. Great to use on paint, glass, interior, door jams, engine bay, and anywhere you would like to wipe on your vehicle. 

Even though there are so many microfiber towels on the market, we wanted to provide our clients with a safe and inexpensive alternative that comes in a 36 pack. Most packs will only have 15 or less at this price point with this quality. 

Directions: Rip off the tag off on every towel. If wiping on paint, fold the microfiber towel to the point where all edges of the towel are not shown, creating a edgeless working area on the towel. 

THE RAG COMPANY WASH MITT - Excellent soft and scratch free wash mitt to use while washing your vehicle. Comes in a 2-pack. Reusable and machine wash safe. 

Directions: Pre-wash and soak the mitt in your wash bucket. Simply glide the mitt (Never scrub or dig into dirty areas) across the panels you would like to clean. The mitt is a little heavier then most since it absorbs water, so gliding the mitt will be easier and less need of applying more pressure. 

ADAMS WASH BUCKET WITH GRIT GUARD - Perfect wash bucket that separates the dirt when putting your wash mitt in the bucket. We suggest buying two if possible. One for the paint & glass and Another one for wheels & brake area. 

Comes with a lid to seal the bucket when not in use so you can leave your wash tools and use it as storage as well. 

TRINOVA FOAM CANNON - TO USE IN CONJUNCTION WITH A PRESSURE WASHER - Great quality foam cannon that we have been using a while. Comes with a wide neck so it does not crack as easy as many others. Very easy to use!

SUNJOE ELECTRIC PRESSURE WASHER - We suggest using a pressure washer with less then 2,100 PSI (ideal) when washing your car. We find this SunJoe electric pressure washer is a great bang for the buck for anyone that washes their vehicle every two weeks. 

When using a high pressure washer with more then 1500 PSI, stand about 2 feet away from the vehicle. Never go closer then two feet and try to use the pressure washer to remove hard contaminants that is on your paint. 

WORX LEAF BLOWER - (*Note - will need an extension cord) It may sound funny to some people but yes, we do use a leaf blower. This is ideal for when a vehicle is already ceramic coated as the water beads on your paint from the car wash will just fly right off. The reason we do this to to create less agitation as possible to the paint. The less touching you do on the paint, lowers the chances of marring or scratching your paint. 

After wash stand about 2 to 3 feet away and start blowing all the water from the crevices and panels starting at the top and work your way down. Also great for drying wheels so no water spotting occurs in case your wheels are not protected with coatings. Wipe down gently with a new/clean dry microfiber any water left behind from the hard to reach areas. 


Congratulations on getting your vehicle IGL ceramic coated with MAR quality protection. It is important that you follow correct procedures to ensure longevity of ceramic. Vehicle must be washed at least twice a month, investing 1-2 hours a wash will insure your investment will see full length of warranty. 

The benefits of ceramic coatings: the list is endless but we will highlight the most important. Eliminates the need for wax, creates deep glossy crystal like finish, offers up to 10H hardness, ease of cleaning, super hydrophobic, improves resale, higher resistance to environmental damage and repels water, oil and dirt, resistance against micro-marring , UV rays, tree gum, salt and traffic film. 

*Always try and wash your car in the shade! This will keep your car wash shampoo solution from drying on the car before it is rinsed off. It is best to wash your car on a relatively calm day as even a slight breeze can put particles of dirt into the air. These dust particles are attracted to the wash/rinse water on your vehicle and act like sandpaper when rubbed between the drying towel and vehicle surface. The breeze can also cause some spots to dryer before soap has been rinsed off - leading to streaks and water spots.

*Use two buckets with a Grit Guard Insert in each bucket. One is for your shampoo solution and the other is clean rinse water for your wash mitt.

Only use high quality car shampoos and wash mitts.
