 So i have been wandering around the internet to find out if hydrated Manganese Sulfate is soluble in various solvents . Some claimed that it is soluble in a particular solvent but others stated that it isn't so I'm quite in a way confused about this. Please tell me if any of you know , Thank you very very much.

I went to Wikipedia, and there's no such info.  That's the best online source, because the ACS keeps tabs on edits and removes obviously bogus physical and chemical data.  A couple of MSDS copies I was able to download also have no info.  You best bet is to go to the public library reference desk and look for the CRC or The Condensed Chemical Dictionary.  Generally, hydrated ionic salts aren't very soluble in alcohols or other polar organics, although there are exceptions.  Usually, if a salt is an exception, 'tho, that's such a useful bit of info, we like to mention it.  So I'd guess the answer is not soluble, or very sightly soluble.
Hey, I'm not judging.  I just like to shoot straight.  I'm a man of science.

If you've got some, then yeah.  But you should also have an MSDS for every chemical you have, either online or on paper.  It may be better that what I found.  You can also call the manufacturer.  You did pay for this chemical after all, they'd get more repeat sales if they were helpful with info.  Sigma-Aldrich, for example, are pretty good in this regard.

Well , i actually do , so i am planning to do so. But i'll have to wait until i get some Methanol. Well, yes , i agree with that ! Haha. I didn't buy it , but I'm trying to remove it from Nickel Sulfate through solvent extraction. Thanks again , Arkon !
