Water Down Your Urine
If you haven’t used drugs in several days, watering down your urine might be effective. On the day of your test, you should drink three or four 8-ounce glasses of water before going in for the test. It is important that you don’t drink too much water. If you go for your test and your urine has no color, the tech will assume that you have watered your urine down. One way to prevent your urine from looking too diluted is to take a vitamin B supplement with your water. This will darken your urine a bit. When taking the supplements, you should take them as directed. If you take too many, your urine will be too dark which will also raise a red flag. Also, drinking too much water can be harmful to your health.
Take a Diuretic
The purpose of a diuretic is to remove excess water from your body and to flush out your system. If it has been a while since you last used drugs, diuretics can help flush the remaining traces. These products make your body produce more urine. The more you urinate, the faster you will flush your system. When using diuretics, you should follow the instructions on the package. If you take more than the recommended dosage, your urine can turn blue. This is sure to raise red flags with the technician at the testing facility. You can find diuretics at your local drug store. You should start taking them as soon as you find out that you need to take a drug test. If you have at least 24-hours notice, diuretics can be effective.
Obtain a Clean Sample
This may be a long shot, but for some, it is the only option. If you have a friend or family member who is drug-free, you can ask them for a clean sample of their urine. If you feel comfortable enough to do this, you need to think about who you are asking. The perfect candidate needs to be drug-free, they cannot be pregnant, they must be close to you in age, and they cannot have any medical conditions such as diabetes. If anything strange comes up for the test to lead the tech to believe that it isn’t your urine, you will fail the test. As mentioned above, the temperature of your urine is also going to be a factor. The tech will be expecting a urine sample that is body temperature. If your urine isn’t, it will raise a red flag. To keep your urine warm, you will need to keep it close to your body. You can also keep it close to a warm water bottle. Finally, since the tech will be standing outside the door, you need to get the urine in the cup without making any noises.
