Windshield smearing with wipers....

This is what's happening on my windshield.

Lately, when my wipers are going I get this filmy smearing part on the windshield. This smearing film goes away when the windshield is dry. It doesn't happens on all sections of the windshield wiper area. I`ve cleaned the windshield with Bon Ami and wiper blades with alcohol, but it didn`t take away the film smear. Any ideas on how to get rid of it so I can see clearer on rainy days?

Its from that crap automated car washers spray on the entire vehicle, spot free rinse or hot wax. Try rubbing compound.

New wipers? When they get worn they do that, a good set will only last about a year.
