[Phys-l] dirty water

Steam escaping from a beaker with boiling dirty water is supposed to be essentially H2O vapor. But is it really so? What about a possibility that escaping bubbles create tiny droplets of dirty water and rising steam is mixed with them? Please share what you think or what you know. References would be appreciated.
