I usually use acetone, rinse, then dump some Simple Green on after and rinse again, and it pretty much gets any fluid off my driveway; including brake fluid when I bled my brakes last summer.

Mentholated spirits should dissolve it. Then rinse with water.

Unless you have silicone fluid, it's water soluble. Funny: it will eat paint, but water will wash it away.

Water usually works pretty well on brake fluid.
