Whatís your RO cleaning routine?

Hi guys,
I apologize for starting this as new thread, Iím sure it has been discussed a number of times. I did a quick search here and wasnít able to find anything recent. Anyway, since I bought my first AP over the phone I wasnít there in person to get a cleaning tutorial. Iíd like to know what your cleaning routine is for your Royal Oak? In a few older posts I saw people recommending the WristClean products. Would you all still recommend that as the best option?
Iíve never had a watch with this level of finish and suddenly Iím noticing every smudge!
My old cleaning routine for my submariner happened once a month and simply involved running it under some warm water then stealing some of my wifeís Cartier jewelry cleaner to shine it up.
Iím thinking my new RO deserves better! As always I appreciate all of your help!

+1, has kept all of my pieces spotless and shining bright, the ceramic perpetual looks as good as it did when I first got it.

Agree with Wristclean and every few months I remove the bracelet and ultrasonic clean it.

I use an olive oil based hand soap and dab dry it. Has been working for years and pretty happy with that routine. Would like to try that watch cleaner though.

Just got my wristclean box in the mail and it is amazing! It made my watches look brand new and spotless with very little effort on my part. I’ll be using it on all of my watches from now on.

I blow the water off of all my watches, no towels or wipes or any kind.
