FAQs
 

Can solids dissolve in liquids other than water?

   
Answer
 

Yes, they can. Lots of liquids are solvents (something that can dissolve things). When you mop up oil paint with white spirit, you are using a solvent on it. There are even smellier solvents at the dry cleaners, getting the dirt out of your clothes.
