    Here is the correct answer:

    If you ever look inside a restaurant ice maker, you will find that it makes ice in layers. Cold water runs continuously over a plate or a grid where the ice is forming, and the ice cubes (or ice disks in some machines) grow in layers.

    If you would like to try creating clear ice at home, start with distilled water (to eliminate the minerals) and boil it (to eliminate air dissolved in the water). Make the cubes small or thin to get closer to the way that icicles are formed.

    Robert Fulghum adds the following:

    A technique used in most ice manufacturing plants that make large blocks of ice is to put a tube in the center of the container of water that is to be frozen. Through the tube they bubble a very low pressure stream of air. Before the tube becomes ice-bound, they remove it, and they pour or suction the water that is left in the center of the ice block away. All of the impurities -- dirt, dissolved air and minerals -- are forced into this water by the crystallizing ice. They fill the void with fresh water (or not) and continue freezing. The core of the block is clouded but the rest of the block is clear. If the core is not refilled and frozen, the entire block is clear

    This is like so easy. I am hoping that you get Sparkling water in India. If you do, take that, and put it in the ice-cube tray. And VOILA!!! there you have your Crystal Clear ice cubes. They would not only be clear, but also sparkling.

    The secret to making crystal clear ice is made very simple. Just boil the water twice (cooling it in between) to get out any impurities, and your ice will come out clear instead of cloudy. Filtered water also seems to be a key factor, although it seems to me that water boiled twice would probably be good enough...

    In the freezer..use bottled or filtered water in the ice trays

    You don't. You do it in the freezer. That's why it's called "ice".
