I only really have high school level knowledge of chemistry, and also I don't really own any lab equipment.
I'm using 3A zeolite molecular sieves to dry ethanol (and sometimes isopropanol) and they seem to be working great.
However, I'm always left with a bunch of dust.
I can let the dust settle over night and then pour off the top in the morning, but it's still got an orange tint to it. I can keep repeating that process but it starts to take a really long time.
I tried running it through a coffee filter but the particles are too small for the coffee filter to catch.
What should I look for in a filter paper / what other material could I use to filter the remaining dust out of the ethanol?
I don't want to distill it, I don't have the setup for that.
