A bottle of lube came with the wiper and one would wipe it on before using the wiper. I never used it though. Before I embarked on a run where it looked it might rain I would get a wet rag and wipe all the dust and grime off the windshield. The wiper would not scratch the screen if the dust and grime was removed. I was using it for 3 years and it never scratched the screen. Think about the alternative of not being able to see through a wet screen and coming off the bike. You would have more to replace then than just a scratched screen!
I never went to bed with an ugly woman...but I often woke up with one!
