    slide/ drop/ slip

    I know the verb ''shed off'', but I would like to know whethere I can use other verbs or not.

    leaves have oily coats , so when rain falls down, it slides/slips/drops from the leaves.

    Thank you sop much for your reply.

    You can use any of those. "Drip" is also good - perhaps the best. In order, I'd choose "drip, drop, slide, slip".
