I get a lot of questions about certain individual products, so some of them I try to cover in an article of it’s own just to make it easier. The Rescue Detox Ice is a same day detox drink that you similarly to most such products drink on the day of your test, a few hours in advance, in order to improve your chances of passing.
How Does Rescue Detox Ice work?
It works the same way as other same day detox drinks in that it only tries to mask the THC and toxins. It doesn’t actually detox you, since to actually detox requires time. Time for the toxins to be expelled from the body for good, rather than just being covered up.
I have not been using this particular detox drink myself, since I have my own true and tested favorites (you can read the home page under recommended products if interested).
But as always it can’t be stressed enough, these products are NOT to be relied on alone if you’re anything but a very infrequent smoker likely to be clean naturally anyway. They are best seen as a buffer to improve the odds, and not something to save the day.
This is because dilution (the main way these attempt to mask toxins) can only do so much (without overdoing it, i.e drinking way too much and thus causing an invalid test result due to that instead).
If you’re not already very close to the cut-off limit for the drug test, these drinks will usually not be enough to make the difference. So it gets risky and unreliable. And if you know me.. Then you know I hate taking any bigger risks than necessary when it comes to drug tests.
So that’s why you’ll often see many negative reviews on products like these, since many people failed their test when they fell for the marketing. And the positive ones are often times from someone who unknowingly would already be clean naturally anyway, but attributes his success entirely to the drink telling other people it worked. People read the review and think it will work for them as well, and more people get to find out the hard way. Like a vicious circle!
So my suggestion would be, if you go with the natural route, to detox properly. If there is no time for that and the test is unsupervised (most pre-employment tests are) synthetic urine is often a decent option.
AND.. Always make great use of the affordable home drug test kits. These can tell you whether you’re already in the clear or not. I prefer using same day detox drinks mainly as a safety net. I would never rely on them unless I was already testing negative on a home testing kit. In this case they’re a great safety measure though, so I still use them regularly.
That’s all for now! Feel free to share your own Rescue Detox Ice review in the comments to let others know how it worked (or didn’t) for you).

I am a female that is 5’7, 121 LBS and I use the rescue detox for the first time today. A week and a half ago I pissed dirty for THC ( I was informed that I was 6 times over the cutoff limit for THC). The job wanted me to work there so bad that they were willing to let me retest (go and pee again). I had another pre-employment drug test scheduled for today (which is Monday, July 24th). I first found out I was getting drug tested again on Friday July 21st. With that being said, even after I pissed dirty the first time I kept smoking . The last time I smoked was Thursday July 20th. When I found out I was being retested, I drank plenty of water and worked out Friday and Saturday. But not Sunday (you shouldn’t workout between 24-48 hours before your test because THC is stored in fat cells that can be released when working out). Today came, and I followed the instructions (I didn’t eat or drink anything for 4 hours before I drank the detox). I called the hotline to see if someone could give me any tips on getting the best result. The customer service rep said that the detox will start working immediately after I drunk it, and I should give it 90 mins from the time I consumed before I go to the drug test. She instructed me to drink the full bottle of product, then refill the product bottle with water TWICE and drink it all within 30 mins. After that, go pee frequently for 3-4 times to help with the detox process ( don’t worry, the detox will make you have to piss well over that amount ) then go take the test. Another tip was to pee in the toilet first, then catch it in the cup mid stream. Do NOT drink or eat anything within 4 hours before or after you drink the detox until you have taken the test for best results. I was nervous because I pissed dirty the first time and I thought they would supervise me the 2nd time. So I brought some clean piss with me ( my brothers) just in case. I got there and it was just like the first. I went in the bathroom and closed the door. I pee’d in the toilet and while I was peeing I poured the clean piss in the cup, and placed the container back in my vagina (to keep it body temperature). I used a travel size shampoo bottle. I didn’t want to risk my pee at the last minute because I have smoke for 5 years strong, at least twice a day. I gave him the cup and he split the pee in two containers. I sealed them as instructed then I was told I was done so I left. I know I passed because I substituted, but since I did buy the product and use it , I still was curious to see if it had worked. On my way home from the test I stopped by the dollar tree to pick up three home drug tests. I got home, peed in the toilet a little then peed in the cup. I dipped all three strips in the cup one at a time. I laid them out to dry for 5 mins then came back. Positive was one line and negative was two lines. The first one I had a line then a faint line that was almost barely noticeable. The other two had lines as well but the other lines were faint but not as faint as the 1st one. On the box it says that a faint line still counts as a line so if you get a bright line and a faint line the test is still negative. So basically, the rescue detox shit did work!! All of my tests were negative, it’s not a coincidence. I did so much research on it and saw bad reviews and I felt that it was only right that I share my experience because I wasn’t sure. Follow the directions and you should be fine. The only people who failed were ppl who didn’t follow the directions obviously! From 6 times over the limit to testing negative within 3 days of not smoking ??!! This is not a drill lol I recommend it. The tast is horrible and I felt a lil nauseated after but that was the only thing I didn’t like. So y’all , do not believe everything that’s on the reviews. Some people are just salty because their plan didn’t work or they didn’t follow the directions. I honestly feel that some people were trying to detox other hard toxins like cocaine, and meth and that’s why it didn’t work. I would not have taken the time out of my day to write this essay if it didn’t really work lmfao I also took pictures of the drug tests to show but there is no way to upload them. So , try it out!! There is nothing wrong with having backup. Sincerely, your college habitual smoker ?
Thanks for sharing your experience Jasmine :)
I have used this detox for a drug test today and it worked! I smoked about a half oz a week for a couple years now! I do not have much body fat and I did quit about two weeks before my test! I did drink a gallon and a half of palo azul tea for two weeks!!(tastes like unsweet tea)
I have also used this detox to get back in school after I got expelled for weed in my vehicle! Shits legit if you actually want to get clean and put the work and effort into it!
Followed directions to a tee and failed the drug screen, the line was faint but enough to not get my job, wouldn’t recommend this to anyone trying to get a job!!!
Sorry to hear that Shari, but as I always say, these are not to be relied on, you want to be pretty much clean already by other measures and only use it as a slight safety precaution, or go with fake urine rather!
This helped me a ton! Thank you
Thanks alot for your reply i have a drug test tomorrow, and I’m nervous about it. Hopefully it works for me!
i just got done taking Ice caps detox Pills around 9am followed the instructions i can take my drug test any time of the Day so i took a home drug test to make i was clean one line and a faded line appeared that indicated I was negative I headed out around 10:30am waited in the parking lot for a minute looking up reviews came across your site got scared went back home cuz i got gut feeling got another home test and it said failed I don’t know if I should get some clean piss to add with my piss just like the last comment
Hope your test turned out alright for you, and yeah, detox drinks are not to be relied upon on their own in my honest humble opinion
Can a rescue detox clean my body from xanax for my drug test?
It can mask it and dilute your urine a bit, but whether enough to pass your test I couldn’t say
Works granted you are within a few days of being clean. Took a test and failed, drank this and passed 90 min later. Used it for an employment test the next day and passed, but continued homes tests just to test the theory and continued failing 5 days without it
Thanks for sharing, John :)
