3-Way Stain on Black Top

We left a 3-Way stain on a customers driveway. I know it will fade away in a couple weeks, but the customers wants it gone yesterday. Tried soap. Any suggestions.

I don't use 3-way much but I didn't think it stained, was dye mixed in?

I doubt it's 3 way stain. I spray over the edge of blacktop all the time and have never had an issue.

I've never had a problem with it staining blacktop.

Do a test on the pavement with some mix....if your not running dye it seems a little far fetched that 3-way could ever stain pavement.
Try WD-40....that works on everything does it not...lol
If it is organic try Oxi-clean in a strong solution and it will not pull the oils in the pavement.

Yes its 3-way stain. Applicator had nozzle open while Z was on customers drive way. Machine was not moving. I know the stain will be gone in a couple weeks. But customer is very unhappy and wants drive resealed, entire drive.

Sounds like a customer that is trying to get a freebee.

Rent or borrow a power washer. 1800 lbs per sq inch pressure. Cleans anything. You probably have to do the whole drive to keep customer happy.

Would offer to pressure wash and re-seal that area, call the company that sealed it I'm sure they can blend in.

Customer sounds like a d**k.

I use bleach when I get herbicide dye on my driveway in excessive quantities. Just pour it on straight.
