Effects of ethanol on crystallization of a solute


I have recently read that ethanol accelerates the crystallization process of a solute in a solution. What is the chemical phenomenon to which this relationship is due?

Furthermore, if you left a solution of unsaturated salted water, added ethanol to it and let it rest for a few days, would the salt crystallize?

Please don't cross post.
