I saw a demonstration once where a professor dunked a t-shirt in a
solution and set it on fire. When the fire went out, the shirt was dry
but but it did not burn up. It turned out to be a solution of rubbing
alcohol and water. I want to do the experiment but I do not know the
ratio of water to alcohol. thank you
