Car painted, how long until wash

Hey, I just got a new hood from the previous one being vandalized and it got painted freshly with Sapphire Black Metallic. Typically you are to wait 30 days, is this enough time? Also, is it bad to take it to an automatic wash? If so, then where should I take it? Thanks everyone

Auto wash is horrid no matter what.

The place that did the respray should have given you a time frame on waxing it. Washing it is not the issue, it is waxing/sealing it that will cause issues.
