Piss test coming up? Can’t use your own urine? Yeah, bummer, but that’s exactly what this page’s for.
Because fact is, that there’s a very effective, yet relatively simple, workaround to this issue. And yes, you guessed it. It’s synthetic urine.
If you’re a total stranger to the topic, let’s just put it out there that it’s pretty much what it sounds like. Instead of submitting your own urine, you submit a synthetic substitute that passes the test the same way real clean urine would.
Let’s also put it out there that thousands of people pass drug tests this way every single day and have done so since many years back.
It’s come to a point where many states see it as a serious problem and are actually considering banning fake urine, all because of how effective a method this can be at passing a test you perhaps shouldn’t be able to.
That said, it’s not a fool-proof method (none is), and it does take a little know-how to avoid the more common pitfalls that make some of those attempting this method fail.
So that’s what I’ll divulge on this page though, after which it really does become a very simple yet effective way to secure that job opportunity.
If you’ve done this before and simply want to know what stuff to buy to pass your test, then by all means, feel free to skip ahead a bit: (I’m not new at this, just show me what fake urine works best to pass my test in 2020!).
But if not, let’s dig in, starting with how and why it can work so well for drug tests, and then determining the limitations of fake urine.

How And Why Synthetic Urine Works So Well For Drug Tests
It may seem a bit strange at first that such a practice of tricking drug testing labs even works to begin with.
“Shouldn’t they have methods to detect that stuff?”, you may naturally ask. And the truth is that they do and they don’t.
So let me explain how synthetic urine can work so well to pass a urinalysis:
First of all, it’s toxin free (and thus can’t test positive for any of the known drug metabolites that are tested for). Secondly, synthetic urine is what the testing labs themselves use to calibrate their equipment, since it gives the same, consistent result.
It’s still a little more complicated nowadays though than it was back in the day, when virtually any fake pee brand would do.
Because in an effort to detect whether the sample received by the lab is real human urine or not, they test for other specified qualities and substances that are supposed to always be present within a certain range in real urine. These include specific gravity and the commonly highlighted urea, uric acid and creatinine.
The trick then becomes to know exactly what markers are tested for by all the different labs, and then make sure those same substances are included in the right ratios when making the synthetic urine product.
Do that, and detecting fakeness becomes impossible. Because you can’t really test whether it is fake or not directly, and are thus left with testing for specific stuff that should or shouldn’t be in there when comparing it to the real thing.
And that is how the very best fake urine products, such as Sub Solution, can stay not only on top of, but even a step or two ahead of the lab testing practices, and remain 100% reliable even as the labs do their best to adapt and make it harder by changing things up.
When To Use Fake Urine (And When Not To)
Although we’ve already established that fake urine can be a very good solution to passing your urine test, there are still times when you may want to think twice.
Your two essential options for passing a urine test when not naturally clean are:
- And urine substitution
Personally I prefer passing with my own urine whenever possible, and use fake urine mainly as a backup when I don’t have the time to do a proper THC detox before my test. But that comes down to preference more than anything, because there are certain benefits of using fake pee that you don’t get with a detox. For example:
- You don’t have to stop smoking and abstain from weed until your test.
- No need to put effort into tiresome detoxification strategies like exercising, diet etc.
- More affordable than a proper detox (even if the top fake urines aren’t super cheap, the best detox products cost more).
- Can be ready for a test on very short notice, regardless of how heavy a smoker you are.
- Avoids any risk of an overdiluted test result.
Also, for the heavier of weed users, when time is limited urine substitution sometimes really is the only decent option. This has to do with frequent long-time users often building up enough THC metabolites in their body that it can take several weeks to get clean through detox.
But as I hinted above, there are also scenarios where urine substitution isn’t as viable and won’t necessarily be your best option.
This would include whenever you’re using a lesser quality (and often cheaper as a result) urine product, but let’s assume for now that you’ve gone with my favorite, Sub Solution.
Then the main remaining issue with fake piss is that urine tests are sometimes supervised, as in monitored.
Depending on how closely you’re observed, you might still be able to get away with fake pee, but it gets a lot trickier, and riskier, and then a detox is more appealing.
The good news however is that this is rare, especially with standard employment drug tests, and generally reserved for legal and probational matters.
So if the test is just for a regular job, unless you’ve heard any differently you can usually assume it’s unsupervised, and simply go ahead as planned with your synthetic urine.
Where To Hide The Synthetic Pee When Taking The Test?
A great question, especially if it’s your first time doing this, since obviously nobody wants to get caught.
In the odd case where you know it’s going to be supervised, I suggest you to again, either consider detoxing instead, or at the very least try to find out more about what company does the testing and their specific protocols. Sometimes a belt around the waist or a fake penis will do, but other times it’s invasive enough that that’s out of the question.
But, assuming it’s an unsupervised test, this is an easy step.
You shouldn’t really need to hide it while peeing, so you’ll wanna focus on just using some common sense while transporting it so it doesn’t give any hints or look bulky.
There are only so many places that work for hiding a urine kit, and those that do tend to get the job done just fine. Most common is taping it to the inner thigh or the groin area inside your undies. Or possibly bra if you’re female.
You can also utilize one of the products designed for this very purpose, such as the stash belt. This is my personal favorite and makes the hiding part of the equation a real piece of cake.

Get The Temperature Right (Practice If You Have To)
The temperature part of the equation remains one of the most important steps to get right in order to pass your urine test with fake pee.
It’s also the most common reason people using good quality fake urines can still fail the test sometimes.
That’s because even if you’ve got the perfect synthetic urine recipe, as in the urine will pass as genuine, if it’s too hot or cold from the get-go that won’t matter.
During a urinalysis, the temperature of the sample is generally measured the moment you hand it over to the testing personnel, and needs to be within a specific range resembling body temperature, just as real urine would. The temperature to aim for is generally between 94 and 100 °F, or roughly 34,5-38 in °C (don’t worry though, good fake urine products such as those reviewed below have very clear instructions for you to follow, where this is included).
The standard way to get the temperature just right has long been to rely on hand warmers and natural skin heat to keep it within the desired range, which is effective to a large extent.
But there’s always that margin of error where if it for some reason hasn’t reached the correct range when it’s time to deliver, you’re basically screwed.
And this is exactly where the top brand of fake urines on the market (kit #1 and #2 reviewed below) decidedly outshine the competition.
They include an instant heating agent in the form of a powder which can raise the temperature of your urine sample in a matter of seconds, largely eliminating the problem mentioned above.
Needless to say, this is huge, and also the reason I no longer use any other fake pee brands personally.
Since the matter of correct temperature is largely in the hands of the user himself (or herself) to get right, it can be a cause of anxiety if it’s your first time, and many people have asked me questions about this over the years.
Whether you use only the powder, or use heating pads to start with and the powder ready as a backup plan (my personal favorite), both methods are very simple. But with the heating powder especially, it is possible to get the sample too hot if you use too much too fast (less is needed the warmer it is beforehand).
Although by just carefully following the instructions that come with the fake urine you should be fine, a great and relatively new alternative available would be, to practice!
The same company and website (testnegative.com) has started selling practice kits as well for this exact purpose, and I’ll agree that, especially for first-timers, actual experience with the process and having done it before yourself can be gold worth. In other words, an awesome way to make sure the temperature step is done right when it matters, and, if nothing else, also a great way reduce any pre-test anxiety.
Best Synthetic Urine Review: The Most Reliable Fake Pee Brands And Where To Buy Them
Below I’ve listed and briefly reviewed the best synthetic urine kit brands and my personal preferences:
Sub-Solution powdered urine kit review (Clear Winner)
Sub Solution is the synthetic urine I use myself and would vouch for personally. It has a significant edge over the competition in that if you need to, you can heat it up in a matter of seconds, not having to wait half an hour or more as with heating pads.
This is because it comes with a chemical heating powder. You can mix some of this with the urine in order to heat it up on demand.
What makes this so unique is, that Sub Solution is the only synthetic urine on the market that lets you circumvent the common problem with fake urines of failing tests due to out of range temperature. That’s actually the Nr 1 reason people who invest in an adequate synthetic urine still fail their piss test. So as I’m sure you can appreciate, a guaranteed way of getting around that issue is a pretty huge deal.
Thus, Sub-Solution clearly outshines other brands at times when you’re in the booth leaving your urine sample and you notice you’re urine isn’t of high enough temperature. Where a hand-warmer or heating pad wouldn’t be able to get the job done in time and you’d normally be screwed, simply mixing a little heating powder in to re-warm it instantly does the trick.
Same goes for random urine tests. If you’re compelled to take a test on the spot, even if you have your fake urine with you, you don’t have 30 minutes of time to heat your sample. Some random tests simply require instant heating of your sample.
So basically, using SS as opposed to other brands guarantees the highest chance of passing your urine test, which in the end is what urine substitution all comes down to.
I was a little skeptical at first in regards to this way of heating it since it was new to me. Could it be detected? Is it hard to hit the right temperature? But it now stands clear to me that it is without doubt the smarter way of doing it. It can’t be detected and heating it up is dummy-proof. Of course a temperature strip is included as well.
The fact that you can still use the traditional heating pad method and have this powder available as a backup option to bail you out from a temperature fail is just invaluable and means old schoolers that remain skeptical and prefer the old-fashioned way needn’t shy away from SS at all.
Another thing I like particularly though is that since Sub-Solution is tailor-made for being able to pass the most meticulous drug test lab examinations it actually behaves like urine should. This avoids unnecessary suspicion that may warrant further testing of your sample. It looks like urine, smells like urine and foams when shaken up.
Not that I like the smell of urine in general, but in this case I definitely do. Natural urine smells like urine, so should this.
It’s made by Clear Choice, a pioneer that’s been around for more than 20 years (since 1993), and is sold from their main website www.testnegative.com with a 200% money back guarantee, so they’d actually be losing a lot of money if their product wasn’t as reliable as it is. It comes with very clear user instructions to boot, since it’s in their best interest that you pass your urine test.
You’ll want to get your hands on this one as soon as possible though if you have decided to substitute. Because, besides shipping time, being one of their premium products and in high demand, it happens from time to time that SS is temporarily out of stock. And since it cannot be found in any physical stores.. Personally I’m not that bothered since I always take advantage of their buy 3 get one free and stock up on this stuff at home anyways, but for those with an urgent test it can be inconvenient to say the least!
Make sure you get it from the official site to avoid any issues with counterfeit copies or expired dates and to take full advantage of that 200% guarantee. Besides overnight shipping if needed, this also means you can contact their customer service with any questions you may have.
You can check availability of Sub Solution on their official website here. If it’s your first time substituting urine (or if you face these tests regularly as in my case), the stash belt or stash undies from their website are really neat additions too, to solve any issues of hiding your sample right off the bat.
Purine powdered urine kit review
I used to use Purine pretty much exclusively for a while, but now find Sub-Solution superior mainly due to its option of a fast heating method. Purine is still decent and when needed I get it here from TestClear.
Includes a heater, temperature strip and of course instructions, although you may want to add an extra heater (in case your test gets delayed) and perhaps a digital thermometer at checkout.
It is in powder form and when mixed it has all the right qualities needed to pass the urine drug test.
It ha some natural properties of urine as well, taking a note out of Sub-Solution’s book.
If you know you will have no need for instantly heating your sample, this is definitely an okay option as well.
Quick Fix review
Quick Fix is one of the more well-known synthetic pee brands. They have an original version and a plus version, the difference being how much urine you get.
You need to heat it with a heater to desired temperature, which can take up to 45 min unless you have access to microwaving it briefly.
There is also Quick Fix Plus, the main difference being you get 4oz as opposed to 2 oz of urine.
The QF urine does not smell of anything in particular, which gives Purine the edge over QuickFix, most other factors being the same. Sub-Solution still has an edge over both of them but also costs slightly more to make up for going the extra mile. Passing your test will always be worth it in the end though.
QF has had some issues in the past with their synthetic coming back as invalid or “not-human”, as can be seen from several online reviews. Many of these were however caused by a counterfeit product that someone illegally distributed to stores as Quick Fix, when it wasn’t. Low quality copies of the QF boxes and its printing were used. This should be resolved by now, but if you happen to have an old Quick Fix lying around which looks sub-par in quality, you may want to investigate further and verify the batch number with the manufacturers.
In light of this, if you do want to use QF, I definitely suggest you get it from a reliable source. I know some friends of mine have ordered it from buyfakeurine.com, who gets it directly from the manufacturers to ensure quality. As a bonus, they also sell Monkey Dongs (preferable to Whizzinators), should you feel you need one. They’re commonly used together.
For those worried about their substituted sample being detected as synthetic, if the formula is good it won’t happen. I’ve personally e-mailed the distributors of both Sub-Solution and Purine and they have only ever had their urine rejected due to temperature which is a customer-side error that will happen every now and then (and WAY less with SS than other fkae pee brands) no matter what if you have many people using a synthetic urine (see these tips on keeping urine warm). Never has their synthetic urine been detected as synthetic or faulty. If you get QF from a reliable source who in turn get theirs straight from the manufacturer, I’m inclined to believe the same holds true but I can’t say for sure.
There are other options in the industry such as U pass, Magnum Detox, P-sure, Clean Stream, X-Stream, Dr Green’s Agent X, Urine Luck, Monkey Whizz etc. if you choose to test those instead. There are many shady and falsely over-hyped rip-off brands though, so watch out. They may all be better than homemade pee, but how well they compare to Sub-Solution and Purine I can’t vouch for, although likely poorly in many cases.
Just remember to always do your homework/research properly beforehand or it can end up costing you dearly.
Sub Solution is in my opinion the best brand of synthetic urine if you want to pass a drug test nowadays. If it’s just for pranking or novelty purposes however, definitely go with any of the more budget-friendly alternatives, since then quality isn’t the most important aspect anymore.
