Default Kamikaze Miyabi - Wipe down after a drive

Greetings All!

I am getting ready to do my first ever ceramic coating on my new '19 Arctic White Z. Thanks to the wonderful suggestions provided by the experts here in this forum, I have decided on Kamikaze Miyabi Coat for my first go at this.

My car is a nice day weekend warrior, so it never really gets "dirty", but definitely gets "dusty" after an afternoons drive around town. So my question is this, after a day's drive, and while it is sitting in the garage waiting for the next nice day's adventure, what product do you recommend as a "quick detail" like product I can use regularly to wipe down and "de-dust" the car after each drive? My research tells me not to use your typical "quick detail" type products as most of them contain waxes or shine enhancers, etc. that can build up over time and reduce the effectiveness of the ceramic coating.

My last car was a Carbon Flash Metallic C6 Grand Sport and I was pleased with how the Adam's Detail Spray (the pink stuff) worked for me on that car (it was not ceramic coated, I kept it waxed), but I am not certain that is the product I want to use on my new ceramic coated car.

Would appreciate any advice/suggestions you all can offer.

Thanks in advance!!

You can use N 914 diluted down to QD strength for those quick needs. A monthly wipe down with Overcoat with re-freshen and extend that coating

Default Adams Waterless Wash

I use Adam's Waterless Wash for quick detailing on my ceramic coat.
It has no waxes or gloss enhancing polymers.
They have a new ceramic waterless wash spray but I find its streaky.

Adam's Detail Spray is a great product, but not for ceramic coatings. It contains a small amount of wax. You can use some fully-synthetic detail sprays on the market, but stay away from the ones that claim to add any "protection". That will take away from your coating's hydrophobic qualities. I would stick to ceramic-friendly sprays that are meant to be used as "toppers". Jax Wax has a "Ceramic Detailer" that has good reviews, and Dinowax has a product called "Serum Boost" which is a really good value. I have used it on top of a sealant application, and it worked really well.

I've never bothered to dust it between washes, and for washes I may help dry with Overcoat. I don't know of anything i'd use for this except a damp cloth

Of all the detail sprays I've used,I find Kenotec works best for me. It's by far the easiest to remove of all that I've tried. Not sure if it's good for ceramic coating.

Yes. Another option that will clean up and not alter the LSP. I use to get any bird droppings. Their Bug Squash is pretty dang good too.

I use a lot of Poorboy's World products. Great quality for the price point, for sure.

If you want to keep the car swirl free, don't wipe the paint if it hasn't been washed. It's that simple.

My approach to detailing is to do everything I can to minimize damage so I don't have to polish the car more than once every two years or so. Your mileage may vary - some people don't mind or even like putting more work into it.

Sometimes doing nothing is better than doing something...
