Drying Wet Deck Core with Acetone

Hi,

I was reading in a Don Casey book that you can dry up a small portion of wet core by drilling shallow holes and dumping in acetone. The acetone should combine with the water and evaporate. But it says to use caution as acetone is highly flamable. I was wondering if anyone has done this or tried this method and how it worked out. Thanks!
