Urine is big business these days thanks to the fact that drug testing is quickly becoming the norm rather than the exception. (The declaration in 2017 of a national opioid crisis only served to accelerate the move toward substance screening by companies large and small.) The result of all this is that many good people have been forced to seek out ways to achieve a negative result that may not be entirely above board. Hence, pee (particularly products like Urine The Clear, which we’ll get into below) has become big business. Among providers, Urine the Clear stands out as one of the few that actually sell real human sample provided by paid donors. They then test this donated sample to make sure it’s clean and safe and resell it to folks who need to pass a test. But is this focus on “real” pee actually useful or is it simply a marketing ploy? Let’s find out.
Real Pee vs Urine The Clear
Urine the Clear as a company is built on the notion that using “real” human pee provides you a better chance of passing a standard checking than using fake ones. But is this true? The idea has a certain appeal to those who maintain that real is always better, but there are actually no hard and fast facts that establish that real sample is more effective for beating a urinalysis than artificially-made products. In fact, you probably stand just as good a chance, and in some cases a better chance, of getting through it unscathed if you use artificial products instead of real piss.
What Makes Synthetic Products So Great?
The companies that manufacture the testing machines that are making so many people's lives uncomfortable these days needed some way to test them. Since they couldn't ask their technicians to stand around and piss into cups all day they developed artificial piss that is chemically identical to real human samples and have used it ever since to validate their machines. It wasn't long after synthetic products (see the rest) was first created, however, that some forward-thinking chemists realized they could make a handsome living selling the same product to people who needed to get past those machines. So the answer to the question "What makes these products so great?" is this: "It was developed specifically for the machine you need to get past to keep your job."
Alright. So, What About Urine the Clear?
As we mentioned at the top, Urine the Clear takes a different approach to the fine art of subverting a screening. They believe that real human sample provides you the best chance to obtain a negative result and go to great lengths to convince potential customers of the validity of their approach. But while there is no doubt that Urine the Clear kits are well conceived and tripped out with everything you’ll need and that they have helped lots of people get through mandatory exams for work or athletics, the fact is their record is no better than that of the best products. And in some cases not as good. But why is that?
First of all, Urine the Clear is upfront about the fact that they use only male pee for their kits. They say it doesn’t matter which raises the question that if it doesn’t matter then why insist on it? The fact is even something as elementary as a strip home pregnancy test can differentiate between a man and a woman so it can’t be all that hard to do. Therefore, while some women may get away with submitting a sample of male pee others are not going to be so fortunate. Second of all, the way Urine the Clear powdered urine is mixed, stored and used is no different than the process you would use when submitting artificial samples. That means that, just like with fake pee, if you missed or neglected a vital step, your sample is going to be outed as "not real", no matter how real the person was who donated it.
As we said, none of this means that Urine the Clear doesn't ever work. It does. But because its record is no better than that of artificial sample while it's price is as much as three times more, the question then becomes: "Why would you pay so much when you could get something just as good or better for 1/3 the price?"
So How Much Does it Cost?
The simple Urine the Clear kit retails for $59.95 while the "full" kit retails for $99.95 plus shipping and handling. Now, when taken in the larger context of potentially saving your good paying job that's a relatively small price to pay. However, it's also three times the cost of the basic Quick Fix 6.2 kit. Again, while spending a hundred bucks to save your career isn't such a big deal (or shouldn't be anyway) why would you spend so much if you don't have to?
Conclusion: So, Should You Buy Urine The Clear?
Based on our Urine the Clear review, these kits contain everything you need to submit a convincing substitute sample during your next urine test including: an IV bag full of someone else’s sample, heating elements, an elastic belt to hold the IV bag in place, a temperature strip to test the temp of the sample, and a pretty decent set of instructions. So does the Quick Fix 6.2 kit. Urine the Clear requires you to monitor the temperature of your sample and if necessary use the heating elements to bring the sample to between 90 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit. So does Quick Fix 6.2. Urine the Clear has a better than 99% success rate when all instructions are followed to the letter. So does the Quick Fix. So, with all things being equal why would you choose the more expensive option? Save yourself some dough and buy a Quick Fix kit. It will get you the negative result you’re after, and you’ll have enough to get a celebratory pizza afterward.
