Methylated spirit is about 95% ethanol, with the addition of pyridene to give it an incredibly bitter taste, and methylene blue dye, which gives it its name. Contrary to popular belief, it doesn't contain methyl alcohol. Ethyl alcohol is quite deliquescent and difficult to keep 'pure' without it absorbing a fair percentage of water. Anyway, I was generally in no desperate hurry to dry my film. So such pyrotechnic shenanigans were a one-off experiment. FWIW. Last time I processed Tmax100 (about a year ago) I was surprised how quickly it dried - only about an hour until it was touch dry. That was after finger-squeegeeing the surface water from it and at room temperature ~ 21 degrees C.
