Removing Rain-X

BonAmi scouring powder will get it off.  Although I've been a Rain-X user
for over a decade and have to believe that you just haven't been applying
it correctly.  We have a car that has never been Rain-X'd that has the 
same streaking and smearing problems that the old car on which much of 
the Rain-X has worn off has.  So my bet is either the application didn't
go right or you forgot how bad regular is.

It's not too different from how people who have just started wearing glasses
think their eyes have gotten worse FROM WEARING THE GLASSES, because of how
fuzzy things are now without.  The real reason is that they have a better
point-of-comparison now.
