As much as 95% of employers prefer urinalysis as a drug testing method, and this specific statistic may have increased the popularity of synthetic urine through the years. Proper use of the product, however, is key to success.
Reasons to Synthetic Urine Warm
As initial drug screening often does not include checking a sample’s validity, the testing staff merely checks the submitted specimen’s temperature as a way of ensuring that it hasn’t been substituted. Human urine is warm by nature, which means your synthetic urine sample should also be warm, or the testing staff may decline it, believing it’s fake. Of course, if you’re caught, you’ll be in trouble, and that is the last thing you want.
Normal Human Urine Temperature
Human urine’s normal temperature can be anywhere from 94F to 96F. The temperature of a drug test sample is taken within the first 4 minutes after being received by the staff, as ambient temperature can cause changes anytime later. The acceptable range is from 90F to 100F; if a sample is any cooler or warmer, it is automatically questionable.
Heating Synthetic Urine
The following are common methods of bringing synthetic urine up to temperature:
Microwaving synthetic urine is by far the simplest way to warm it up enough. Just place the container in the microwave for around 10 seconds and you’re done. A temperature strip comes in handy when it comes to checking the usability of the sample. Remember that too much heat can destroy it, so don’t leave it in too long. Even if it cools down, the properties of natural human urine will not be restored.
Hand warmers are handier and always available, making them a more practical option than the microwave. Just put the liquid in a small container and tape the hand warmer around it. Hand warmers aren’t all created equal however. Buy one that maintains heat in the 90F to 100F range for as long as necessary.
You may not have to look far – your own body can be your most effective synthetic urine warmer. After putting the sample in a sealed plastic bag, tuck it inside your underwear or in your inner thighs. Some women will put it in their bras or under their armpits.
Practice Makes Perfect
Finally, before actually showing up at a testing facility with your synthetic urine, don’t forget to practice, practice, practice. You need to know exactly what you’re going to do and how you’re going to do it to avoid getting caught. The more you practice, the more relaxed you will and the more likely you can pull this off.
