What makes ice cubes cloudy?

As the water freezes, air is trapped in the ice. Light rays are distorted by the crystals and air, giving home-frozen ice a cloudy appearance. This does not occur in most commercially produced ice, as it is stirred as it is being frozen. This mixing reduces the crystallization and trapping of air.
