    depends what it is but maybe try a cream or solvent cleaner and also you never know a magic sponge might work aswell.

    If it is water type stains that have been there for years then good luck with that as now just takes too long trying to get rid so I don't bother anymore.

    If just tiger stripes then normally I would use a mix of ubik, cream cleaner and elbow grease

    what cream cleaner you using? iv got em off with ubik before on fascias but took ages and had to use it neat and like u say bit of elbow grease involved my problem is its about 30-40 foot in the air so i ent gonna be able to scrub it by hand unless i get a picker theres one onsite but its a massive jjob and gonna take days think to scrub it by hand if not longer, i might just have to leave it hes fine anyways but like said i wanted to get it off for sake my reputation
