Default Water?

Probably, water freezes fast because it's thinner then vineger and oil. just a guess, hope it helps!
Have you ever felt being tested?
asking Him what to do.
And in your heart,
He's telling you,
"Have faith my little children
and keep your souls clean and new."
For when you least expect it,
I will make my big debut
Follow me to the heavens,
and to your small world, say adieu.

Prepare for judgment day.

I also think that water is the fasteset to freeze because it is less dense the vinegar and oil. After it may be the vinger becasue oil is the most dense.
My whole life comes crashing down on me.
But in th end all you have to do is Lift it back
up an dstart over again...

Um, water is DENSER than oil.

Have you guys done anything like putting oil and water in a column and forming layers of liquid?

And oil droplets (in soup) floats on water.


However, oil is able to take more heat than water (boils at a higher temperature). Should freeze slower than water. Not slower exactly, but takes a lot of energy to take out before oil freezes.

As for vinegar...

Do you know why you spray salt unto the snow? Salt makes water's freezing point lower. So vinegar is salty, right, and it has other ions (salt breaks into ions in liquid). So these ions will lower vinegar's freezing point.

It's not freeze quicker, exactly, but how low your temperature has to be to freeze.

So make your freezer really really cold (coldest) to see if vinegar and oil will freeze.
