Most people will pee between 6 and 8 times during any given day. With all that urine flowing, why is synthetic urine such a hot buy in today’s market?
As it turns out, there are several uses for synthetic urine that have attracted everybody from drug-users to scientists. Below, we share a few interesting and perhaps unconventional uses for synthetic urine that you may have never considered.
1. Cheating Drug Tests
Ask a room full of people why synthetic urine is used and most of them will answer, “To cheat drug tests.”
It’s true, many purchase synthetic urine to pass drug tests. Cheating tests with fake urine may be more difficult than testers bargain for given that supervision while giving a test will almost always be a county requirement.
2. Pest or Wild Animal Repellent
Many animals avoid areas where they suspect potential predators may be hanging around. The smell of foreign urine might be enough to make them consider going elsewhere.
Synthetic urine is particularly popular to use around gardens which can get ravaged by local deer and rodent populations.
3. Scientific Testing
Believe it or not, there’s a fair amount of scientific research that gets conducted around urine. Unfortunately, testing actual human urine presents risks to researchers as it can carry contracting pathogens.
For some tests, synthetic urine meets the standards that researchers need and allows them to avoid the chances of falling ill.
4. Health and Beauty
There are sects of the health and beauty community that believe urine has the power to cure acne and can provide the skin with a special glow that can’t be attained via traditional beauty products. Since using actual urine can encourage the transmission of disease, beauty professionals opt for synthetic urine.
We can’t imagine what kind of glow is worth your skin smelling like urine but to each their own!
At the end of the day, sometimes a person is going to buy a bag of urine not to protect their garden or to ward off acne, but to simply bother their friends. For instance, by strapping on a Whizzinator and causing a little havoc.
Therein lies one of the most common uses of fake urine. Good, old fashion fun! We just hope that if you choose to pull a gag with synthetic urine, you do so in a way that’s as tasteful as possible.
