I guess it depends on what the "wiped" stuff is... dust? grease? dirt?
Anyway, my first reaction to this problem is to think 2D-- either using an animated texture map, or even simpler using AfterEffects or a similar application. For example, in AfterEffects 6, you could draw some nice brush strokes and have it automatically "draw" them over time.
In 3d, I guess I'd try some Pflow effects--but that seems very time-consuming for something that could be accomplished much easier in 2d...
