I found that if I put too much fluid on the swab it would streak. Not sure if you are using pre-moistened swabs, but I found those to be far too wet. Going over the sensor/filter a second time with less fluid (and a new swab) has always got rid of the streaks, taking a second pass with the other side of the swab. I also pause for about 10 seconds to let the fluid absorb evenly into the swab before taking a pass over the sensor. But I use cleaning tools made by these folks http://photosol.com/, and not visible dust.
