I did an experiment to see which froze first, water, water mixed with vinegar, water mixed with soap or water mixed with salt. I thought that water would be first because the freezing point of the solutions would be lower so it would take longer. What happened was the vinegar and water froze solid first, followed by the soap and water and then the water. The salt solution remained slushey. Why did the vinegar and soap solutions freeze first?
Re: Why does a vinegar/water solution freeze before just water?
