Spectrum Lab Quick Fix is a brand of novelty synthetic urine. It is the best-selling fake pee on the market today. Sometime people use artificial urine typically  for passing drug tests, but some people also use it for other things like science experiments, pranks, animal or pest repellent, gardening, and, um… pee fetish stuff? 

For people who have drug tests coming up though, each and every batch of Quick Fix 6.2 pee has been pre-tested by manufacturers to ensure that it will give test-takers a passing result.

Whats pretty cool is that Quick Fix urine is unisex, which means it works for both male and female.

And unlike the other synthetic urine products you’ll see on the market today—like the dehydrated or powdered urine kinds—Quick Fix comes as a liquid, ready-to-use form which ensures it’s quality and dilution. BB Hydro Australia sells more of the Quick Fix brand than any other detox product on the market. 

It only takes 10-20 seconds to prepare, so the name is quite literally what it claims to be—a quick fix.

Spectrum Labs has multiple patents by the United States Patents on their products.

They ensure that each batch is lab-tested before it is sent out for delivery to assure the quality of the product. I believe that they are the only company in the world that actually does this. 

Wondering whats in Quick Fix Synthetic Pee?

It’s not enough for Quick Fix to just look and smell like urine; synthetic urine has to have the exact same chemical composition as real urine if it’s going to get past laboratory analysis. We’re happy to report that Quick Fix boasts an identical chemical composition to genuine human urine, meaning it includes biologically accurate amounts of urea, uric acid, and creatinine.

But urine is more than just ingredients; it’s also about properties, so Quick Fix also has the same specific gravity and pH balance as human urine. The combination of all these factors is what you need to fool the testing instruments and get a pass on your test.

There’s only one other synthetic urine that can even come close to the chemical accuracy of Quick Fix, and that’s Sub Solution. And while Sub Solution is a great product, it’s also a great deal more expensive than Quick Fix.

Has Quick Fix Ever Failed?

Quick Fix never fails…when it’s used properly. If you have an expired batch, or if you hand it in at the wrong temperature, there’s a very good chance of failing!

Here’s how to avoid those scenarios:

1. Temperature Issues

Here’s the thing that trips up some people and causes the most failures.

Human urine can range from 94 to 100 F. A lab has to take the sample if it’s within that range, but it’s also where most people get caught out by the techs. There are a few stories where a lab tech hasn’t even looked at the sample before rejecting it immediately for being the wrong temperature.

This is why a genuine Quick Fix package from the real website always ships with a heating pad, and why the instructions always stress to heat it up before you go in. So don’t risk buying your Quick Fix from an alternate source, the heating pad is a crucial element to passing the test, and if it’s missing or inspired you’re going to be left to your own devices.

Other factors affect the temperature as well. Remember to keep the bottle strapped close to a part of your body that can provide enough heat; the inner thigh or sticking it down your underwear works. Dress warm, especially if you live in a cold place; the more body heat you keep, the less chance there is of your Quick Fix cooling off.

How to grow Sunflowers?

How to grow Sunflowers? 0

We have had so many people write in recently about the best way to grow sunflowers so we decided to write a few tips down. 

When I think of Summer I think Sunflowers. 

Sunflowers add colour to your garden, and they are some of the most easiest plants to grow and care for. Whats amazing about Sunflowers is that they are heat-tolerant, resistant to pests, and simply beautiful.

You can even harvest their edible seeds.

Here’s how to grow them in your garden!

An annual plant, sunflowers have big, daisy-like flower faces of bright yellow petals (and occasionally red) and brown centre that ripen into heavy heads filled with seeds.

Sunflowers are heliotropic, which means that they turn their flowers to follow the movement of the Sun across the sky.

Tall and coarse, the plants have creeping or tuberous roots and large, bristly leaves. Some tend to grow over 16 feet in height. Some varieties have been genetically modified for small spaces and containers, ideal for small apartments or courtyards.

Most sunflowers are remarkably tough and easy to grow as long as the soil is not waterlogged. Most are heat- and drought-tolerant. They make excellent cut flowers and many are attractive to bees and birds.

Best soil for growing
Sunflowers are annuals that grow well in fertile, well-drained soil. Their ideal soil conditions lie between a pH level of 6.0 and 7.5, however, they’re pretty hardy so will grow in most soils with some care. Most importantly, they love being planted in a spot that has 6–8 hours of sunlight each day. You could even grow sunflowers indoors in containers if you place them near a north facing window or add a 600W HPS light kit. Similar to the one below.

When and how to plant
Spring or early summer, when the soil is starting to warm up, is the best time to sow sunflower seeds. A typical harvest time is about 10–11 weeks. If you’re sowing seeds in a garden bed, you should aim to place them about 60cm apart and 2cm deep. Before you plant, enrich the soil with some fertiliser and give the soil a turn with a pitchfork so it is loose.

Companion planting
Good companions to plant alongside sunflowers include cucumbers, melons, sweetcorn and squash. You should avoid planting them next to potatoes and beans because of the toxins that they can give off.

Staking sunflowers
As your sunflowers grow, they will become top heavy and need staking. This will also protect them in high winds or in the rain.
Sunflowers need a deep, regular watering. This will encourage good root growth and a large, heathy bloom. The ideal time to water is in the morning, as root rot can set in over cold nights. Sunflowers can also benefit from a liquid fertiliser every two to three weeks, which will boost their height.

What are Microgreens? Can you make it into a salad?

What are Microgreens? Can you make it into a salad? 0

Microgreens are one of the quickest food crops that we can grow and are tiny edible greens grown from the seeds of herbs and vegetables that are harvested before they can mature.

Unlike sprouts which you would harvest and consume once germination, these seeds burst open with the first root /shoot. Microgreens are grown in soil and require sunlight, they can be harvested when they're a few days to a week old. 

Compared to their fully matured versions, they have a much higher concentration of nutrients despite been smaller. A few studies have been done comparing microgreens to their fully matured versions and they have managed to outperform their counterpart in vitamins and minerals.

  2. It is believed by many that the naturally high level of antioxidants and vitamin C found in many microgreens and particularly in kale and broccoli helps boost your skin's collagen levels. 
  3. Microgreens provide an excellent source of energy due to their high levels of Vitamin B6 and Vitamin B. In addition, Vitamin C provides a great energy boost by strengthening your immune system.
