You could also use a pressure washer, but you want to make sure that it does not harm the siding. Always start with a wider/lower pressure spray, and test a small area

The preferred cleaner/brightener for cedar or redwood is an oxalic acid wash. Scrubbing or LIGHT pressure washing will help -
One product I've is mfg by Flood and available either HD or Lowes. Look at the caution labels and search for oxalic. It needs to be rinsed off very thoroughly.

Good Luck!
