Absolute Detox /XXL Carbo Drink
Q: I used your absolute Detox Drink and now I have diarrhea, what does this mean? Is this natural?
A: Yes, this is normal; the product is a detoxifying dietary supplement, which can have that result on some individuals. This is a temporary side effect and will subside.
Q: Where can I find my expiration date on the product?
A: There will be a printed code on the top of the bottle around the curved neck. This is an internal code, and you will need to call Spectrum for this information.
Q: I want to make sure I am clean for my test; can I take the XXL if I am not over 200 lbs?
A: You do not need to take the XXL if you are under 200 lbs. The XXL is for persons over 200 lbs. The 16 oz carbo drink is for persons under 200 lbs. Both of the products are for light to moderate smokers.
Q: I didn't avoid toxins for 48 hours before the test like the directions say; will this product still work for me?
A: Probably not. You need to follow the directions printed on the bottle.
Q: What is the difference between "Canadian" Quick Fix and regular Quick Fix?
A: Canadian Quick Fix contains urea, a natural compound found in human urine. We call it "Canadian", because labs in Canada were among the first to use this as a validitiy check during a test. It's perfectly fine to use Canadian Quick Fix in any type of situation, however you must use Canadian when testing in Canada and some US states.
Q: Which states test for urea?
A: This list is slowly growing, but as of 3/1/13 urea checks are being done in CA, HI, OH, OR, WA, and WV.
Q: I heated the Quick Fix up twice, and there is still no reading on the temperature strip. What is wrong?
A: You need to let the product cool down. The directions recommend heating the product for 10 seconds. If you do not see a dot under the temperature, but the bottle feels warm, you have probably overheated the bottle. Allow it to cool down for a few minutes.
Q: Where can I find my expiration date on the product?
A: There is a batch number located on the directions inside the box. If the batch reads like this example, F09P-10, and the number ends in 10 or below, you will need to send the product back in for an exchange. If the batch number ends in 12 or higher, the product is still good to use. It has a 2+ year shelf life, however please be sure to check our website occasionally or call for recalls. If you have a batch number that begins with 13 or 14 these are good batch numbers.
Q: How can this product be both male and female?
A: It is illegal for a lab to test the gender of the Urine for a pre-employment test.
Q: Can I mix 2 different Quick Fix together if just using 1 doesn't fill it to the line?
A: Yes, you can mix 2 Quick Fixes together as long as they are both current batches.
Q: Can I add anything to the Synthetic Urine?
A: No, if you add anything to the Quick Fix Synthetic Urine, you will contaminate the product and will not be able to use it for your test.
Q: Can I pour the silver/red pouch into the Quick Fix?
A: No, this is the hand warmer. All you need to do is take the warmer out of the plastic wrapper package, and shake it. Once shaken, the contents will automatically activate. This can only be used once though, so don't open it until you need it.
Q: What temperature do I need to have the Quick Fix at?
A: You need to have this product between 90o and 100o F. Your body temperature is 98o F, so you need to have it as close as your body temperature as you can.
Q: What is the best way to keep Quick Fix at proper temperature and leave it there?
A: We recommend heating the product for 10 seconds in the microwave, then attaching the heating pad or keeping the product against your body to keep the heat.
Q: Is my Urine Luck under recall?
A: You will check the formula at the bottom of the directions sheet. If the formula is lower than 7.1-10 return to Spectrum Labs PO BOX 8401 Cincinnati, OH 45208 Att: Exchange Department. We will replace this at no charge. Please allow 6weeks.
Q: Do I drink the 2 vials?
A: No, you do not drink these products. You need to follow the directions, and add these to your urine sample.
Q: My hands are orange! What happened?
A: You got some of the liquid from the vials on your hands. Try to avoid any contact with skin. If you did happen to spill some on you, wash your hands in soap and water, and it should come off within a wash or two.
Q: Will UrineLuck work if it has been frozen?
A: Yes, thaw the product and bring solution back up to body temperature before using.
Q: Does UrineLuck work on screens?
A: UrineLuck is only 50% effective on pre-employment nicotine screens.
Q: When do I rinse this shampoo out?
A: This is a leave in shampoo. You will not rinse this out until your test has been completed.
Q: Does it matter how long or what kind of hair you have?
A: Yes, if you have long hair or thicker hair, such as African-American hair, you will need more than one bottle.
Q: Can I use a hair dryer?
Q: Will it make my hair look greasy if left in?
