OUCH!!

author

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

author

Seriously!

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

author

Cool! That could work!

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

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

author

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.

author
tubbychick3n (author)mitchell122008-09-18

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

author

I meant leave it in the balloon!

author

Gotcha...heheh

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