You don't want to use anything that has any kind of polish, silicone, or wax in it on a Matte finish, as it will ultimately ruin the satin sheen. The 'matte' will begin to look uneven, and splotchy. Once that happens it really can't be undo sans a respray.

Pedros and other make cleaners designed specifically for matte finishes.

I have two matte finish bikes. They rarely get dirty enough to warrant anything more than a wipe down with a damp cloth, so I don't worry too much about it.
