Check the driveway surface for cracks. Remove dirt and debris from larger cracks with your 5-in-1 tool. Then fill them with a driveway patch (available at your local hardware store). Make sure to fill the cracks completely and then smooth them over with the trowel.
Give the driveway a good sweeping and scrape off any gunk that might be embedded in the asphalt. Hose off the driveway to get the surface as clean as possible.
Put on some old clothes. Cover your shoes with plastic bags to protect them from splatter.
Stir the driveway sealer for 15 minutes or until it is an even consistency.
Pour sealer in a line down the center of the driveway. You want to spread the layer of sealant as thinly as possible to cover the entire surface. Use a squeegee to pull the sealer from the center to each side. Continue until the driveway is completely covered.
It takes a few hours to dry and overnight to cure so avoid walking on it and certainly don't park on it until it is fully cured.
