question about dark streaks after some rain

My car is white and after it rains a couple times, the car gets dark straight streaks all the way down to the bottom.

For instance under the door handles and under the door like the side skirts.

I believe it is the rubber seals on the handle and the inside of the door that produce these marks after rain, it pisses me off because the car isn't dirty after it rains it just gets these long streaks of i guess rubber residue from the seals. its been happened every time after it rains since i got the car brand new in April.

I tried putting a couple coats of wax over the places that got the black marks to see if it would prevent the rubber from sticking but it doesn't work.

Any suggestions? anyone else have this problem? it causes me to wash the car after every time it rains because i hate driving a dirty car.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
