Removing Paint Mistakes Smudges and Drips from soft brick on a 100 year old home

Trying to remove old paint drips and smudges from soft brick around windows and doors. Because of how soft the brick is, I don't want to use a pressure washer and have heard mixed reviews on using chemicals, mainly that they don't do much and can change the colour of the brick. Any thoughts or innovative ideas?

Scra-ping and rubbing may do more damage than good. Why not touch them up with matching color exterior paint?

From distance, it will look good.
