      All you gotta do is push the bubbles away from the area where you want clear ice. What is hard to follow, it's clear as ice.

    I thought the cloudiness in ice was from the expansion of water, when it can’t expand it is more densely packed causing a whiter color, but when it has room it spaces out and is clear
