I’ve been at some expensive bars where they use clear ice cubes. I once asked one of them and they told me they use an ice-making machine. I knew this machine works using a principle and this might be applicable. I started asking questions and I got this very simple answer.

Why Many Ice Cubes Are Cloudy And Whitish

When you make ice cubes from tap water, they come out opaque. This is because you are using water that contains dissolved gases and minerals. When you use bottled water that had been purified using reverse osmosis or distillation, you can get clear ice cubes.

But it doesn’t have to be this complicated. Simple boiling can help achieve that.

Trick For Making Clear Ice Cubes

To make crystal-clear ice cubes with tap water, boil the water to remove most of the dissolved air. Let the water cool in the boiler and then heat it over again to boiling point.

After boiling the second time, let the water cool slightly, then pour it into your ice cube tray and put it in my freezer. Allow it to freeze.

You should get your ice cubes clear, just the way you want it.
