Problem with ashpalt sealer water.

I sealed my driveway, then washed out the bucket s ---2 anyway. Wasn't paying attention to where the waste water rinsed out . It ran down my old asphalt- to An old well pitted concrete curb.Its now stained with a black water film. 10' of curb 4" wide i guess.Have you any tips on removing this dried on "asphalt water?" Anything you THINK might work- please post it.cleaners thinners etc. i just don't know thanks much for stopping by bob s

Do you still have the buckets? I would look to see if they list a solvent on the label.

Most of those sealers are water based. That means water and soap cleanup.
After the product is dried.... soap and water is no longer effective.

I'm thinking pressure washer.

Denatured alcohol works on dissolving latex paints but I have no idea if it will work with driveway sealer. It will wear away with time. Pressure washer will probably work.

I'm thinking time will erase the memories, and stain!

If I remember correctly a muratic acid solution will clean up battery acid stains.
