Yikes - sounds like clearcoat is just what it needs. Using wax doesn't help?
Anyhow, why not make your own windshield washer fluid? It seems like you
could just use a solution of water and a mild detergent like dish-wahing
liquid or a car-wash detergent. The alcolhol is probably mostly an
anti-freeze. You don't say where you live, but if it doesn't go much below
freezing you shouldn't need the alcohol.
That's my completely un-informed opinion...
