Matte Paint Help

So I have a 91 gt with matte black paint I've had the car for about a month and I've been scared to even mess with the paint. I need some tips on how to take care of the paint in terms of washing And drying and if I can use soap of not. I know that I can't wax it. Any feedback would be great thanks

I did a search and found the following... It is easier to copy and paste.

During SEMA 2010, a new trend appeared on car after car lining the halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center. Matte had arrived! We posted pictures of all the matte paint jobs, prompting a lot of questions about what products should be used on them. Waxes are made to be shiny, right? There wasn’t yet a product made for exclusively matte finishes, but there is now!

Chemical Guys Meticulous Matte Detailer is the first matte paint, matte clear bra, and vinyl wrap spray detailer and UV coating protectant in one. MMD cleans and maintains matte finish surfaces while protecting the finish. It has UV blocking agents in a wax-free formula. MMD easily, rapidly and safely removes dust, grease, dirt, road film, grime and bird droppings, delivering an even matte finish.

Chemical Guys also makes Meticulous Matte Auto Wash, a clean-rinsing shampoo that leaves no glossy coating on the paint.

But those aren’t the only products available for matte finishes. Optimum Opti-Seal and BLACKFIRE Crystal Seal both offer excellent paint protection that preserves the paint as it is – no extra gloss. These products do not require buffing and do not alter the look of the paint.

The most important thing you can do to maintain a matte paint job is PREVENT SCRATCHES! When a matte finish is scratched, it cannot be polished out like clear coat. The polish will make the paint shiny. It will completely alter the look of the paint. To reduce the risk of scratches, use high quality washing, drying and detailing tools. Soft microfiber buffing towels and nonabrasive products are key to safely detailing matte paint.

If you have a matte paint finish or matte-painted panels, you now have multiple ways to maintain the non-glossy appearance.
