Many people use synthetic urine to pass their urine drug tests.
It is a fact however, that drug testing companies are constantly evolving, and substituting fake pee for your own has become harder to get away with than it once was.
Not only has the supervision become stricter, making it more difficult to hide and use fake urine..
But nowadays the labs can also test for this, meaning they can detect if the urine isn’t from a human body in origin.
It’s still very possible to pass your test using synthetic urine though. You just need to know WHEN it’s a good option, when it isn’t, and use the best synthetic urine brands that are reliable and won’t be detected as ingenuine.
And a bunch of other things..
Don’t worry though. I have covered all you need to know on this very page.
I have listed all the main factors you need to consider when deciding if using fake urine is a good option to beat your drug test or not, what markers the labs use to decide whether the urine is fake or the real deal and what brands sell the best synthetic urine (a.k.a. urine that actually works).
So, let’s get into it!

Does synthetic urine work for drug tests?
In short. Yes, synthetic urine works to pass a urinalysis. It’s toxin free and what the testing labs use to calibrate their equipment, since it gives the same, consistent result.
It’s a little more complicated though nowadays than it once was, and not always the best option.
But as long as you use quality stuff and know when you may want to avoid using it, you should be all good.
I’ll explain just that below.
When a fake urine kit IS a good idea – the four key factors
As mentioned earlier, using synthetic urine to simulate real pee is definitely a viable option for some piss tests. I have used it, but I would really only recommend this if you know that the following factors hold true:
1.) Your urine test is not supervised (no one will be watching you as you pee in the cup).
2.) It is a supervised test but you KNOW that they won’t make you pull down your undies to your knees and your shirt above your navel or watch carefully as the pee leaves your body. They do this more often as of lately due to the many people who beat urine tests with fake pee in the past, relying on hiding it in their underwear and/or on fake penises/urinators with backstraps (Whizzinator, anyone?). Pre-employment tests are generally not that thorough though and often unsupervised.
3.) You use a reliable brand of fake urine. There are many rip-off products out there that either never worked or did work once upon a time. Drug companies have become better at detecting if urine is synthetic or not though, so low quality brands are highly unreliable. I’d recommend Sub-Solution which is what I have the most experience with and what me and my friends use when we need to. It’s a powdered urine kit.
4.) You won’t pass the test without it. Let’s say you smoked a huge amount of cannabis on the day of your drug test. Then detoxing or attempting to mask the drugs are not realistic methods for you, but using urine that isn’t yours to test negative, is.
So, if the above mentioned terms fit with you and your urine drug test, then by all means go ahead, it may be your best bet and you’ll likely pass it without any problems.
If they don’t however, or if you’re not so sure..
Where do I hide it during a supervised urine test?
A great question which can be tough to answer.
It depends a lot on the specific testing facility, and thus you may want to do some research about what company does the testing for your job/organisation and their methods.
As I touched on in key factor nr. 2 above, sometimes you may be compelled to pull your pants down to your knees and your shirt up above your navel. I’ve also heard of testing facilities that make you put some sort of bath robe on. This isn’t the norm however, so do your research on this one.
If it’s an unsupervised test you shouldn’t really need to hide it at all while peeing, so just use some common sense while transporting it. Most common is inside your undiesr or possibly bra if you’re a female.
Here are some ideas on where to hide it for a supervised but not super-strict test;
- Bag taped to your inner thigh. This is a real classic.
- Wearing dual undies and keeping the bag in-between them.
- Up your vagina. (If you’re a female that is. And yes, I’m very serious, this is certainly an option).
- In your bra (again, if you’re a female). A sports bra and a looser shirt should do it.
- In a special synthetic pee belt above your navel. If you read about possible inspection methods above you will understand why this is actually a really clever way.
Tried any of the above? What’s your personal hiding spot that has worked? Please let me and others know in the comments. If it’s good I might add it to the list.
The adulteration check and markers
An important part of the drug testing process of urine samples is the adulteration check.
This is done to determine whether the specimen being tested is genuine and not fake/synthetic, is diluted, or if it has been tampered with in order to mask drug metabolites in any way.
Here are a few important things the test examines;
- pH – Normal pH in urine ranges from 4.6 and 8 but slightly more or less may be acceptable. If yours not within the range it is a clear sign of adulteration.
- Specific gravity – This reveals the concentration of solutes and density of your urine sample compared to water. The reference range for specific gravity is 1.005-1.030.
- Temperature – It should be between 90 °F and 100 °F (or 32-38 °C) to not look suspicious.
- Creatinine levels – If your sample isn’t above 15 mg/kg of bodyweight it indicates that it’s diluted.
- Uric acid – No uric acid means non-genuine, substituted pee.
- Glutaraldehyde – Present in many urine masking agent products and not naturally present in urine. Thus, an obvious sign a sample has been tampered with.
- Nitrate – Same as above, shouldn’t be present i natural pee.
- Urea – One of the more recent compounds labs have started testing for. If it isn’t present in your sample, they will know it’s nothing but fake piss.
- Color and odor – Although not officially part of the test, if your pee looks and smells like water, it’s common sense to suspect it may be diluted which may warrant extra testing (which is why b-vitamins are so common when diluting urine, since they add a yellow color).
You can probably understand now why you need good quality synthetic urine in order to not get caught. Which brings us to…
Best synthetic urine – Reviews of brands and where to buy them
Below I’ll list and briefly review the best synthetic urine kit brands and my personal preferences.
Sub-Solution powdered urine kit review
This is the synthetic urine I use the most. It has an 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 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.
I was 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 the better 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.
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 be screwed, simply mixing a little heating powder in to 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. Random test beating = instant heating.
Another thing I like particularly though is that Sub-Solution 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 22 years (since 1993), and is sold from their main website www.testnegative.com with a 200% money back guarantee.
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 and 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 smells and behaves like urine should, on par with Sub-Solution in that regard.
If you know you will have no need for instantly heating your sample, this is definitely a valid choice as well.
Quick Fix review
Quick Fix is likely the most well-known synthetic pee brand. 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.
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, in my opinion, has an edge over both of them but also costs slightly more. Passing your test will always be worth it 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 whizzinators.com (update: website no longer active), who gets it directly from the manufacturers to ensure quality. As a bonus, they also sell 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 no matter what if you have many people using a synthetic urine. 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 etc. if you choose to test those instead. How well they compare to Sub-Solution and Purine I can’t say with certainty.
Just remember to always do your research properly beforehand or it can end up costing you dearly.
