Over the past 25 years or so, drug testing has gone from a way to ensure train conductors weren't blitzed out of their minds when transporting hundreds of passengers at high speeds to a way for companies to open a window into the private lives of their employees; typically with little or no good reason. Because mandatory screening has, for the most part, stood up in court, a lot of normal people who aren't drug addicts or abusers of anything have had to find ways to protect their privacy and safeguard their careers from Big Brother. One of the best ways they've found to do this is to use products like Jet Clean to circumvent those urinalyses. So, let's get into our Jet Clean urine review, shall we?
What is Jet Clean?
Jet Clean is premixed synthetic urine that you can purchase from a number of online resellers. It comes in a kit that includes 3 oz of artificial sample in liquid form, a heating element, and a temperature strip. The idea behind Jet Clean is the idea behind all artificial pee products: if you feel there is some reason you may fail an upcoming lab screening you submit the fake sample instead of submitting your own pee. Such products generally have an excellent success rate although to be sure some are more reliable than others.
But having said that, does this product as it is intended to? Let's check right now.
How Does Jet Clean Urine Work?
Jet Clean is intended to take the place of your own real sample in the event of a mandatory exam. You’ll notice when we listed what comes in the Jet Clean “kit” we mentioned a heating element and a temperature strip. The temperature strip is nothing more than a basic thermometer that you’ll use to determine if your Jet Clean sample is warm enough to submit. And the heating element is what you will use to heat the sample prior to submission should you need to. Why would you need to do that? Because a genuine sample fresh from a living, breathing person is always in the 90 to 100° Fahrenheit range. The testing machines are calibrated to check for this right off the bat. You’d be surprised how many people overlook this and have their sample kicked out as "not real".
The way to avoid that unhappy occurrence is to use the temperature strip to check the sample a couple of hours before you have to submit it. And if you find it’s below 90 (or even in the low 90s), take out your trusty heating element and strap it to the sample bottle using an elastic band. Keep it there until the temp strip gives you a reading in the mid-90s. How long it takes to reach that temperature will depend on how far the temperature of the sample has fallen. This is why you should always allow at least a couple of hours to warm it back up if need be.
Why Bother With It? Why Not Just Ask My Friend to Donate a Sample?
It’s a good question and one that’s probably asked thousands of times a day all over the developed world. But the fact is asking a friend to donate some of their pee so you can pass a urinalysis is a bad idea for a lot of reasons. Primarily because you never really know someone until you analyze their piss. Let’s say you had a few bong hits on Friday night and you have a test on Monday. You ask your friend for a sample and they assure you they haven’t smoked any weed for months nor done any coke or anything like that. What they fail to tell you is that they have a taste for methamphetamine that they’ve been keeping secret from everyone. You then take their sample, pass for pot and fail for amphetamines. It’s a pretty safe bet your friendship will never be the same as well.
Are There Any Other Alternatives to Products Like Jet Clean?
Sure. If you are understandably reluctant to ask a friend for a sample and you don’t want to submit a synthetic sample for whatever reason you still have a couple of alternatives. They are:
- Do nothing and hope for the best - In this case, you keep your fingers crossed that the testing machine is faulty or not very sensitive or that you somehow managed to flush the offending substances from your body faster that is physically possible.
- Call in sick - There are more than a few individuals who have chosen this route. What they typically learn is that calling in sick will buy them some time, but it will also bring them into the crosshairs of the higher-ups who will now watch them like a hawk assuming they have something to hide.
As you can see, your alternatives are not good no matter how much you try and spin them. Your best bet by far is to use a high-quality product. But is Jet Clean urine that product?
So, Does Jet Clean Work?
First of all Jet Clean is premixed. It's not the only artificial product that comes premixed, but if you're going to go the premixed route, it's essential to choose a brand like Quick Fix that stands behind their product. The folks at Jet Clean play their cards close to their vest and don't offer a money back guarantee like Quick Fix. The guarantee is vital because premixed samples have a short shelf life if not handled properly from day one. The other problem is that the Jet Clean "kit" supplies only the bare minimum. There's nothing to help you submit your sample in the event the test is being monitored. If you can't whip out the bottle of Jet Clean urine because you're being watched, you're out of luck.
The folks behind Jet Clean may be upstanding individuals, but that doesn’t matter when you’re facing a substance screening. You need results. Dependable results. Because of that, we recommend you give Jet Clean a pass and pick up some Quick Fix 6.2 instead.
