A solution of soil and water, filter paper, filter funnel, conical flask and beaker.

Simply heat the mixture (e .g. water and salt) – the water will evaporate, leaving just the salt behind.
Distillation can be used to separate a soluble solid and a liquid (and you get to keep both)
Distillation can be used to separate two miscible liquids with different boiling points (and you get to keep both)
Two miscible liquids are liquids which mix together, e.g. alcohol and water.
