wiper streaks

Rainy days here, and I see a tiny wiper streak on the drivers side.
I tried cleaning the wiper blade with soft cloth, got a lot of grease on the cloth but the streak remains.
i searched and found that BMW offers replacement of wipers once in a year, but I guess i will reserve it for a later time.

Its a tiny streak, so i would like to rectify it right away. Pl advise.

Hmmm? They will give you new wipers when you say you need them, go get new wipers...my SA has always replaced the wipers at my direction, usually 2 x per year.

Try using some windshield washer solvent or even a rubbing alcohol patch on them. it should help.
