    Hybrid Ceramic Spray every month, or Ultimate Liquid Wax 3 times a year ?

    Hello and nice to meet you,

    I live in Santorini Greece, a harsh environment for cars (dusty air, hot sun, morning dew, no garage, you name it).
    I wash my cars every month with microfibers and two buckets etc.

    I am interested in protecting the car from the sun. I am not into "serious" detailing because I don't even have a garage.

    I like either of those two strategies. Which one would you suggest ?

    1. Use Hybrid Ceramic Spray every two months (after every second wash) or even after each wash (every one month).

    or

    2. Use Ultimate Liquid Wax on April, June and September and let it remove itself during the winter (the sun is much weaker during winter so I would rather use
    this time to let the wax "reset" itself so I don't have build-ups).



    I prefer [1] because it is easier to apply correctly, but does it protect the car anywhere near as the Ultimate ?
    And does it "grab" on the paint directly ? Or does it require a wax to sit on ?

    On the other hand, [2] Ultimate seems much better, but the rubbing outdoors is tricky, because there is no way I can free the car from contaminants outdoors.
    As soon as I have dried the last panel of the car, there is dust on the panel I dried first.

    What do you think ? Thanks for putting up with my ignorance!

    Makes sense, thank you.

    If I leave the car unwaxed througout the winter (just washing it once a month), say from November to April,
    will the waxes completely remove themselves automatically ?

    Well, the waxes are meant to wear off slowly, so the paint doesnt, so the waxes will partially or mostly gone after that long. The ceramic things last longer, but similar idea.

    But with the wax gone, the dirt would be bonding to the paint. So you would want some sort of cleaning step before waxing again, or a cleaner/wax.
