Hello all. Do soaps and other chemicals from automatic car wash strip off sealant and waxes that were applied by hand?

I am planning to detail my daily with one coat of Klasse sealant and one coat of Collinite 845. I was wondering whether I should even bother to detail my daily if I'm going to put it through a car wash through winter
auto detailing alexandria va(maybe 10+ automatic car washes until March).

If sealant and wax can somehow survive these chemicals, I might as well go ahead and detail my daily driver. I detailed my weekend car today, and while waiting for sealant and wax to cure my weekend car, I decontaminated and "somewhat" clayed the daily driver. All I have to do is to apply the sealant and wax during the next wash.

Touchless washes are alright, but they do use harsh chemicals that strip sealants. Skip the Collinite 845, use Jescar Power Lock+ instead. While Collinite is good, Jescar is much easier to work with and remove, plus it's slicker than Collinite.
