How to remove white streaks from brick??

I just bought a home that has streaks of white residue on the brick. The streaks are located underneath the aluminum siding and windows. I've tried removing the streaks with paint remover, bleach, and Krud Kutter using a pressure washer. Nothing worked! Any suggestions? Please see attached pictures.

Sandblast it.

If that doesn't do it, the brick has absorbed the white pigment and it's probably permanent.
