rusty asphalt driveway

We have been remodeling our house and have had a big dumpster sitting in the driveway for a long time. The dumpster is gone but it left a big rust stain on the driveway.
We have tried pressure washing the driveway with heated water and then biodegradable soap and heated water, but the stain remains.
Short of applying driveway sealer to the entire driveway, is there anything we can do to remove the rust stain ?

Re: rusty asphalt driveway

Have you tried a product like CLR (Calcium, Lime, Rust)? I don't know if that would damage your driveway or not and you should check with someone knowledgeable about concrete before attempting it. You might also use muriatic acid. Beware, it will EAT the concrete. Make sure you read and understand all of the hazards of using such a product before attempting it. :D
