Question Washing a vinyl satin wrap

Just after some advice or suggestions of which products to use on a satin vinyl roof wrap, I've just had done on my mk3 Focus RS.

I've been told by the company that did it to avoid any products with wax in it when cleaning. I've read various articles on general maintenance of wraps, etc, but Ive currently been using gyeon bathe which contains wax, so I'm looking at using another product for the roof separately to bathe. Any good products in particular? Or will just anything ph neutral do.

Also, I use bilt hamber auto foam, is it ok to continue to use this on a satin wrap? I'm also needing a new quick detailer, so while I'm getting one I may aswell get one that will work well with my satin wrap, any suggestions?

A lot of questions there I know! Just don't want to ruin the wrap on first wash

My cars roof is wrapped in glossy carbon effect and very good it looks too, just treat it the same way as the rest of the car, I foam it, 2 bucket wash with the quality shampoos we all use on here and I wax it, I apply Tardis on to it, all beit I spray Tardis on to a cloth and wipe away. Never had no issues, even PW it but keep the lance at a reasonable distance.

Thanks for the reply

I wasn't sure as some people tend to say to treat it the same way as you would with a painted finish, whereas some say the opposite.

I will just make sure I don't pressure wash on high power near the edges, or anything similarly stupid. I needed a quick detailer anyway so I've ordered some meticulous matte to give a go, no harm

From memory, Autoglym bodywork shampoo (was called Pure) doesn't contain anything wax / conditioner wise and easily available to buy...
