how can we separate a mixture of sugar and salt?

The sugar will dissolve in an organic solvent like alcohol. Salt doesn't dissolve in alcohol. So if you add pure grain alcohol to the mixture, filter out the salt through a paper coffee filter, & then boil off the alcohol, you will then have the sugar left in the pan
