Smoking weed first became commonplace in the 1970s. Yet here we are 4 decades later, and people still seem surprised to learn that THC can linger in the system for 3+ weeks. That's longer than virtually any other type of controlled substance (and yes, the feds still consider weed a controlled substance). So you could conceivably take a few hits off a joint at a Memorial Day barbeque at the end of May and then fail a drug test on June 20th and lose your job. It’s outrageous. But until drug testing is defeated in the courts, it's reality. So you need to deal with it. Synthetic urine promises to help you transcend intrusive drug tests, but not all fake urine is created equal. Below we’re going to take a close look at Simple Solution synthetic urine to see if it’s the solution it claims to be.
What is Simple Solution?
Simple Solution is a fake urine kit (for fetish use of course) which some people claim has helped them clear the hurdle of intrusive drug testing. Simple Solution is actually a kit that contains 3.5 ounces of premixed product in a bladder-style clear plastic bag, along with a tube you can use to dispense the pee when the time comes.
Simple Solution pre-mixed fake urine is said to mimic the chemical characteristics of real human urine with all the requisite proteins, creatinine, amino acids, uric acid and more mixed in the proper quantities and balanced for pH in a way that mirrors real pee. If someone wanted to, they could conceivably strap this bladder of fake pee to their person and use it to dispense a urine sample for the purposes of keeping their job.
This product doesn’t require any mixing or call for any type of special storage. You simply heat it up to between 90 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit (presumably in a microwave), strap it on and go take care of business. To keep the pee the proper temperature, there are 2 heating pads that come with the kit which you wrap around the bladder.
What are the Ingredients?
The Simple Solution strap-on bladder is small enough to effectively slip into your pants without being detected. The kit itself includes the aforementioned 3.5 ounces of premixed synthetic urine (see more) plus an adjustable elasticized belt that should fit any waist up to 48 inches, 2 heating pads as we mentioned above and a long clear tube that is used to transfer the fake pee from the plastic bladder to the cup. There are also 2 clips that should be used to pinch off the tube to control the flow.
The company touts this as being a “unisex” fake pee. But in reality, all fake pee is unisex since drug tests don’t, and never have, checked for hormones. The fake pee looks and smells like pee (although it is darker than you would expect from a person that wasn't dehydrated) and for the most part, the kit seems like it should do the trick. But all is not sunshine and puppy dogs.
Does Simple Solution Work?
When it comes to Simple Solution, things aren't as simple as they seem. First off we’ve heard too many complaints that creatinine levels are not all they should be. Second, this brand of fake pee does not include urea. And many drug tests today look for this waste product from the liver when verifying whether pee is real or not. And third, delivering the pee to the cup via the tube/clip mechanism is challenging to say the least. Especially if someone is in the room with you.
We tried and tried to nail the process of clipping and unclipping the tube to release the pee and frankly, we can't imagine how someone is supposed to do this during a chaperoned drug test without sending up stadium-size red flags. There's virtually no way to make this look like you're taking a normal pee. Now maybe some folks out there have got it down, and that's great if they do. But we spent a lot of time trying to make this seem natural and came up short.
So does it work? Well, if the sample doesn't get kicked out for lacking urea, and it doesn't get kicked out for insufficient creatinine, and it doesn't get kicked out for being below the acceptable temperature, and you don't get outed trying to deliver the sample using the clumsy clip/tube method, then it might work. If it were us, we'd just use some Quick Fix 6.2 and be done with it.
How Much Does Simple Solution Cost?
The Simple Solution kit costs a fairly hefty $79.95. That’s twice what industry leader Quick Fix 6.2 will cost you. And with Simple Solution’s questionable effectiveness and clumsy delivery method that’s a lot to ask someone to cough up. If the product had a more or less spotless record like Quick Fix, we wouldn't have a problem with the price. Unfortunately, there are so many potential issues in play here that 80 bucks seems like too much to ask.
Where Can I Buy Simple Solution?
Maybe you’re the type who likes to live on the edge and doesn’t mind the prospect of having to change careers over a failed drug test. If that's the case, then you can pick up Simple Solution from any number of online retailers, including this one. If it were our career that hung in the balance though, we’d use that 80 bucks and pick up a couple of packages of Quick Fix 6.2. But it’s up to you.
We applaud the makers of Simple Solution for trying to help people save their jobs. However, we can’t recommend a product with this many potential problems when there is a cheaper, proven commodity on the market in the form of Quick Fix 6.2. So our advice would be to take a pass on the Simple Solution fake urine kit and opt for the true simple solution: Quick Fix 6.2.
