# Can any solute be used to lower the freezing point of water?

Let's say I want to lower the freezing point of water by 5 degrees Celsius. I know that for a fixed volume of water, I will need $x$ moles of solute to do so.

Because freezing point depression is a colligative property, does that mean I can use any solute to lower the freezing point of water as long as the molality of the solution is maintained, or are there other properties of the solute that need to be considered?
