Wash mostly every day depending on weather then every other time i use spray detailer to bring back shine. Use black turtle wax once or twice a month with buffer

i wash mine about once every 2 weeks. Twice a year i bust out the polisher for some paint correction. i spend about 10 hours doing this process. wash, claybar, 2x over with some compounds and polishes, wheels and tires, and finally 2 coats of sealant. When i am done the truck looks almost brand new and the rain beads for a good 6 months. Other than that, i usually use the ONR a couple times a month. Takes me about an hour. Black looks BAD when its clean !!!!!!!

Black DD is tough to keep clean. Wash once a week, spray detailer as needed, wax twice a year. I do run through a touchless wash, but if you get the minimum package thats usually enough to clean it without killing it with soap. I don't ever get the "full" package b/c it just sprays "wax" and crap everywhere.

Wipe it down with detailer everyday its nice out. Wash it after it rains or when dirty. Wax twice a month at least. Bust out the PC for paint correction in the spring.
