Removing clay stains from asphalt

Does any one know how to remove clay stains from asphalt?

I foolishly left some clay footprints on a neighbour's new asphalt and the acid in the clay has stained it.

She tried to scrub it off with a broom and water to no avail.

Any assistance will be appreciated.

If clay is that prevalent in the area, why bother? Your footprints, her footprints, the dogs footprints, car tires, etc...
Best way to neutralize an acid, is with a cleaner that's a base.
Thanks Ron,
She allowed me to dispose of my clay in her yard in order to fill a depression.

The clay is where no-one walks and it will be covered by grass eventually.

The foot prints were mine as I walked on the clay to compress it.

It may be too late to use a base since the chemical change has already happened.

What do you think?

Thanks LadyFinisher and *<(((><.

*<(((>< it is asphalt - not concrete.

Would muradic acid work on asphalt?
