    Maybe it was back-wash from your mouth?

    Sometimes the minerals in the water will form a scum-like when frozen.Flakes are caused by calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate precipitates. When hard water is frozen or boiled, the carbonates in the water come out of solution, appearing as whitish flakes and attaching to containers. This calcium is the same as that in dairy products and is harmless.

    When I rented a place in Charleston this summer... I noticed that a high vaulted ceiling sun window above the kitchen had water residue deposits on it. It was quite beautiful when the sun hit. Looked like frost.

    Those deposits, however, wouldn't be apparent from any water supply tapped and stored in a bottle... I think. Concentrations have to be way too low.
