I have heard that the Dave's insanity hot sauce is so hot that it is able to clean off driveway grease better than any other cleaner?

Cars & Vehicles
Salsa (sauce)

The ability to clean off driveway grease has effectively nothing to do with the "hotness" of a hot sauce, and I wouldn't expect any hot sauce to do a particularly good job of it, certainly not better than, say, turpentine.

So, while you may have heard it, the person you heard it from has no idea what they're talking about.
