Devil Dexcool out of the street?

So I was doing a coolant/hose/thermostat change and when I went to drain it the coolant went everywhere EXCEPT the catch pan. I live in an apartment so honestly I can leave it there and it's not my responsibility. But since I was the one who made the mess, I would like to clean it up. Dexcool has some type of oil in it so it stains the street like motor oil does. Is there some type of solvent or method I can use to wash it away/lift it without damaging the asphalt?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Or buy a bag of cheap old school kitty litter and toss it onto the spill so that it soaks up most of the leftover moisture/spill and sweep it all up into a plastic bag and toss it in the garbage.

I have used dish soap (whole bottle) and a hose to take care of it before. Spilled about a gallon of 50/50 mix when I did it in our driveway.

Google Floor Dry and Oil-Dri. Similar to cat litter. Buy whichever's cheaper by the pound.
