    Sometimes I take a lighter into walmart and burn a thead of teh material. Cotton doesn't melt while nylon and poly does. Be careful with this. Don't burn down walmart.

    Same information, but in a flow chart. Depending on whether you're a left/right brain person, you'll either love this or think it's silly.
