One thing I've found when one is using Rain-X one needs to replace one's
wipers every six months.  Rain-X apparently softens rubber and causing the
wipers to streak.  Also it is very important to apply Rain-X to a perfectly
clean windscreen otherwise you will seal dirt and "film" into the coating.
I've stopped using Rain-X and am trying another windscreen treatment.  So
far, no streaks and my wiper blades are still fine.
