Any tips for washing a black car?

We now have a black Fiat 500 which is the first black car we have owned (except one a few years ago for a week-long story...).

I am an avid car washer and I wondered if there are any useful tips to helpme keep the car in top, clean condition?

Many thanks

Nick

However you clean it you will swirl it.
