Answer by  reliable80 (125)

Acetone is most often used as a solvent. It can be used to remove ink or nail polish. It is also used to dry objects after washing. The acetone displaces the water, then evaporates very quickly.

Acetone is a wonderful solvent, it can dissolve many things that water cannot. It is used in many labs to help dissolve salts, ligands and other solid chemicals. Many labs also use acetone to clean lab spaces as acetone evaporates water rapidly. Acetone can also be used in a car to clean and improve gas mileage.
