Ouch wouldn't wanna be hit by one of those!

Not only is that "ouch," but that could also kill, considering an ice ball would probably be as hard as a typical rock.

Oh Boy...!

instead of boiling or filtering like everyone else says, just use de-ionized (distilled) water. no contaminants to fog the ice.

Cool! That could work!

mitchell12 (author)2008-08-27

Yep boiling and filtering the water would make it much clearer I might give it a try like that.

imshanedulong (author)mitchell122008-08-28

Thanks for reminding me I was gonna mention boiling! although, it may melt rubber.

after boiling it, you're supposed to let it cool off after.

mitchell12 (author)tubbychick3n2008-09-18

I assumed that was obvious but I guess not.

tubbychick3n (author)mitchell122008-09-18

yeah it was obvious to me. i guess not him.

Weissensteinburg (author)2008-08-28

...don't put this in your lunch. Unless you want a puddle of water, of course.

I meant leave it in the balloon!

i think you should re-name this instructable "how to freeze a water balloon"

To Simple. Plus it gives it away.

arne hendriks (author)2008-08-28

I like it. Lots of creative things you can do with this.

Sandisk1duo (author)2008-08-27

if you boil the water twice, it should be close to crystal-clear
