How do I clean my siding?
For vinyl siding, the manufacturer’s recommend:

b. Use ½ cup laundry detergent and 2/3 cup TSP (Trisodium Phosphate) and 1 gallon of water.
c. Using a soft cloth wipe down your homes siding and rinse with a garden hose.
For Hardie siding, the manufacturer’s recommend:

Do wet leaves stick to Alu-Rex products?
Only temporarily. Alu-Rex products boast a smooth, perforated surface. Just as they may temporarily stick to the hood of your car, leaves and debris that land on the surface of Alu-Rex products dry quickly in the sun and breeze. And unlike your car hood, the surface beneath the wet leaves on your gutters is perforated so they dry faster!
A little wind is all it takes to sweep away leaves and debris:
