I have posted here before about the essay I am doing with my cloud chamber and I got a lot of help so here I go again.

I know that a cloud chamber should have a felt that is covered with isopropyl alcohol and that too much makes it perform worse. But why? What exactly happens to the atmosphere in the chamber if I use too much alcohol? With too much I mean that the alcohol is dripping. Does the chamber get saturated?
