If you have a drug test or urine screening coming up soon, you could be wondering if the Synthetic Urine you purchased some time ago will soon do the trick.
Is it still OK to use? How long does Synthetic Urine last? Well, let’s get rid of those fears that your Quick Fix Urine or similar product is out of date – it has the longest shelf-life of almost all synthetic urine products.
Is it Possible for my Fake Urine to Go Bad? What things may affect the product?
One way that your fake urine may go bad before its actual expiration date is if you store it incorrectly. Here are 3 different factors that come into play that could affect the product you bought:
- Exposure of the product to Oxygen
- Other extreme conditions
Sometimes when you are rearranging stuff, you may forget to store it at the required temperature. If your fake urine comes into direct contact with sunlight, the pH levels may alter which in turn may go on to affect your urine test results.
If your fake pee has been exposed to sunlight for a short period of time, normally up to an hour, things should still be ok. However, if your fake urine has been left in direct sunlight for extended periods of time it is advisable that you talk to someone at Quick Fix for advice.
Another important factor that needs to be taken into consideration when storing fake pee is its exposure to oxygen; pre-opened fake pee having been exposed to oxygen. Many people ask if they can still use Quick Fix if the product has been previously opened.
An example of this would be if you took your product to work as you had been advised of a screening on that day, and you had opened it to check creatine levels or the pH, only to be later told that your screening would be delayed for some days. What about the Quick Fix you opened already? Will you still be able to use it when you get called in for screening the next time?
The simple answer to this question is yes. However, the quality of the fake urine, regardless of the brand you choose, will deteriorate once it has been opened. The pH level of your product will alter once it is open and has been exposed to air. To make sure that this problem doesn’t happen to you, always seal your Quick Fix or other fake urine when you are not using it.
Extreme Temperatures and Conditions
The best way to store fake urine is always away from direct sunlight and at room temperature. Your fake pee should be kept at a temperature between 68 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit.
Can Fake Pee Be kept in the Refrigerator?
It is not recommended to store fake urine in the fridge, and you should never put it in the freezer.
Does my Fake Pee Have an Expiry Date?
Yes, it does, like any other product you buy. The length of time to the expiration date of your fake urine will depend on the brand you choose, Quick Fix having the best shelf life.
What this means is that the ingredients of your Quick Fix are good for two years, even with moderate changes in temperature being experienced.
Once this time period has expired, your fake pee will also expire. The creatinine levels, pH levels, and overall quality of the product will deteriorate, making it less effective for passing drugs urine tests.
If your Quick Fix is passed its expiry date, do not use it for a screening, unless you want to put yourself in a very compromising situation.
As Quick Fix has a two year expiry date, it’s important that you use it within that time frame. In order to protect you, the manufacturing date of your product will be clearly printed on your fake pee, on a green insert you find inside the package. What you will find is a batch number and code, not the actual date.
Holding the green piece of paper up, you will see the batch number of your product on the left hand side, or on the actual bottle in some cases. Under no circumstances should you throw away the green insert of your product as it also contains instructions on how to use your fake pee.
To find out the exact date of manufacture of your Quick Fix, you need to call and verify the batch number with Spectrum Labs. They will be able to confirm the manufacture and the expiry data of the product, this being something we recommend you do before using Quick Fix or other brands of fake urine.
Tips that will Make Fake pee Last Longer
Here’s a quick recap of how to ensure that your fake urine preserves its given shelf life:
- Always store your Quick Fix in a dry, cool place
- Ensure that your fake urine doesn’t come into contact with direct sunlight
- Never put your fake pee in the freezer or fridge
- Ensure you don’t expose your fake pee to oxygen
- Check the batch number and verify the expiry date before use
- Always use branded products, steering clear of counterfeit products
Will my urine sample go cloudy if I put it in the fridge?
When you keep real pee in the fridge it will turn cloudy, but this will have no bearing on your ability to pass a urine screening test. However, if you are storing someone else’s pee in order to pass a screening, the presence of bacteria could also account for it taking on a cloudy appearance.
The best way to stop this happening if you wish to use real pee for screening it to freeze it; bacteria start to grow after 24 hours have passed, the same being true when you keep the sample in the refrigerator. When you freeze pee, no bacteria will grow.
Using fake pee is more hygienic and a better option than using someone else’s sample for your screening. It lasts a long time and its takes away the gross factor of carrying around someone else’s pee. Stale pee is easily detected by labs, so it’s best not to take the chance. Quick Fix is a great option that will pass lab tests without a problem.
Can You Use Quick Fix Once it expires?
No, you should not. After expiration, the quality of your Quick Fix product as well as the pH level will deteriorate, these things being picked up by many lab techs. Wrong pH levels of a sample or altered levels of creatinine will raise concerns, and you may fail a screening or be asked to do a supervised one instead.
Quick Fix is renowned for have a long shelf life, two years to be precise. As we said above, you can clarify the exact date by phoning up and quoting the batch number found on the bottle or green insert.
Can Fake Urine be Stored in an Opened Bottle?
This is not recommended as fake pee should be stored in an airtight container. When your sample is exposed to oxygen, it will start to deteriorate and its shelf life will reduce. For this reason you will find that all the best brands of fake pee are packaged in airtight pouches.
Can Fake Urine be Re-used?
The short answer to this question is yes. You can heat and reheat the urine more than once. All you need to remember is to have a method of reheating, either will the supplied heat pad or by running it under hot water.
Can Fake and Real Pee be mixed in order to dilute the fake pee?
No, this is not recommended as the make-up of the two products is different. Quick Fix is a complete solution that contains the same ingredients as real pee, meaning that you don’t need to dilute it. If you do so, or add other elements to your sample it can lead to you failing your screening. All you need to do is to follow the instructions carefully and ensure your sample is at the correct temperature when you are called for your screening.
