Default Power washing soffits and the endless amount of dirt

Vented soffits and the dipping dirt residue after washing. Looking to stop the dirt residue that drips long enough to to get a couple coats of paint on them. This has been a ongoing head ack for me. And seeing I am getting ready to bid a bunch I thought I would ask

Same concept as avoiding weep holes in vinyl. Back off from em and stay at an angle.

What I do sometimes is to go back after washing with just a garden hose and lightly spray it off. Lot of times that will get the running gunk (mud dobber nests inside the soffits I think) of while not causing more to come out.
