According to an article at diamondcertified.org, “Exterior Paint Tips”
“Your cars paint job is both one of its most noticeable features and one of the most expensive features to replace and repair. Fortunately, there are many preventive steps you can take to protect your cars paint and keep it looking like new. Consider using the following tips as a starting point:
Use proper tools to wash your car. Start with a cotton or paint-safe microfiber washing mitt, a five-gallon bucket and cleaning products specifically designed for automotive use. Only use pH balanced, non-detergent formulas that won’t strip wax, and combine them with lubrication to prevent scratching and conditioners to maintain shine protection. These products are usually gentle on all painted finishes as well as rubber, vinyl and plastic components.
