Why Does Salt Make Water Colder?

Answer

Salt makes water colder because salt depress the freezing point of water so the water can become colder than 32 degrees Fahrenheit before it turns to ice. Adding salt to water causes a temperature drop that slows the melting rate and increases the freezing rate. Therefore salt water has a lower freezing point and it can reach temperatures of nearly minus 6 degrees F.
