Washing car after CQuartz

I've searched a decent amount and I can't really find a solid answer as to what products (other than the CarPro products) are safe to use when washing a car which has been coated with CQuartz finest.

I currently have CG Glossworkz shampoo, and Hybrid V07 spray sealant/quick detailer. If I don't have to, I don't really want to purchase more shampoos and spray sealants.

Does anyone know if these are safe to use on CQF?

The only reason I want to use Hybrid V07 is to add some lubricity to the paint while drying. I could do this with CarPro's reload, but it costs $45 a bottle here in Calgary (that's about $34 USD).

Any tips on cleaning CQF in general?

Here's some detailing pr0n. Just got my car back from a 2-stage paint correction polish + CQuartz Finest Application










Overexposed photo. Whoops.








Dat shine tho.

I would just wash in car in conventional ways, and re-apply the CQuartz when it wears out. With a high end product like CQuartz, it would last AT LEAST 3 years even with harsh washes.

Before I take the time to explain how to maintain ceramic coated paint, does anyone still care?
