    Bleach maybe. A power washer! Wire brush, paint! A gun to force the people that put it on their to take it off! The sooner the better so I'd be out there doing it now!

    Depends on what the graffiti is ....Is it water based paint?....oil based?.....Magic Marker?.......Unless you know what it is, its going to be tough. Try pressure washing and see if it will take it off. If not, a solvent is going to be needed or sand (media) blasting....which likely isnt going to do the siding any good.....Worst scenario, the siding is going to have to be painted over....or replaced

    You really should stick to replying to things you actually know something about rather than just guessing :p
