Removing Paint off of Drive Way Pavement

I am in the process of painting the exterior of my house. I got 3 sides done already.

However, I spilled a little bit here and a little bit there, especially on my driveway.

What is the best and fastest way to remove paint? I bought paint remover from Jasco but that did not seem to work too well.

I read in other post about amonia, lacquer and paint thinner. What is the fastest and best method?

Thanks

The driveway is concrete or asphalt? The paint is latex or alkyd?

Thanks for always replying to my post.

The paint is latex and the driveway is concrete. Asphalt is the black stuff right? Well, my driveway is rough and concrete color. I guess it is concrete.

You might try Goof Off. The chemicals won't hurt the concrete. If the Goof Off won't do the trick, some paint stripper would be the next approach.

Hope this helps.

Goof off is Xylene. Buy a gallon, use a brass brush. Scrub a lot. DO NOT USE A STEEL BRUSH. Striking a spark would be a very, very, bad idea. And the steel brush will abrade and cause a rust stain.
A pressure washer will strip it off also.

It will remove latex primer, too.
