2 Windshield wiper questions

First question.

My stock windshield wiper fluid ran out and I replaced it with the cheap Walmart stuff. It sucks. What kind do you use?

Second question.

When my wipers move across the windshield they streak like a ****. I cleaned the blades seperately using a washcloth with windshield wiper fluid on it, but they still streak. Does this happen to anyone else? It seems to be worse when there's only a little bit of water on my windshield and I turn them on. Sometimes it streaks so bad that I can barely see.

Thanks.

I just bought new wiper blades. Problem solved for $12.

For washer fluid I got some called apex from advance auto parts. Most of it is good if the freezing temp is -20 F or something.

I started using the rain-x windshield wiper fluid it works good but is a little spendy. you will notice that you use your windshield wipers less and there are a lot less bugs on your glass. as far as the streaking i have it too. i just haven't changed out the blades yet. i mostly get blade hopping from the bass produced in the trunk.

iunno, i would think that through a harsh winter they would be **** by summer, thats why people put in winter blades. i would assume tho that ours are both summer and winter.
