# Will water allow salts to be dissolved in methanol (that are otherwise poorly soluble)?

If we make a mixture of water, methanol and a salt like $\ce{FeCl2}$, $\ce{NaCl}$ etc, will the ability of water and methanol to mix allow $\ce{FeCl2}$ and $\ce{NaCl}$ to be a part of this mixture and form a solution as opposed to when $\ce{NaCl}$ and $\ce{FeCl2}$ are just added to methanol in which they are poorly soluble?

Or will we see layers forming (which I don't see happening because of the strong tendency for water and methanol to mix)? Or will we just see a methanol-water layer with some salt dissolved in it and some salt left at the bottom (even though they are soluble in water)? Thanks in advance

I know for sure that separation does occur in water/ethanol/$\ce{CaCl2}$ system, even though ethanol by itself is miscible with water in any ratio, as is methanol. Then again, $\ce{CaCl2}$ is much better soluble in water than $\ce{NaCl}$, so the latter might not be strong enough to produce the same effect.
