Imagine that you are an H2O molecule. As a liquid, you vibrate and flow around with other water molecules. When temperatures get low, you vibrate less and begin connect with your neighbors to form ice.
BUT THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN NaCl GETS IN YOUR WAY!
With salt all up in your space, it becomes more difficult to bond your fellow H2O’s. That’s what’s happening when you melt ice with salt.
Most people will just say that salt lowers the freezing point of water. That is true, but it’s not the whole story.
