For some parents, giving your child a Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit is a no-brainer.

For others, it is a decision filled with emotion.


No matter where you stand, it is key you eliminate the cheating.


You need to make sure that you know how to recognize whether or not your child has tampered with it.


The first indicator is the drug test temperature strip. The Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit will indicate a proper specimen if the temperature reads between 90 and 100 degrees. You will see a green dot appeared.

Here are before and after photos. You will see in the second photo the 92 degree dot is lighter than the others. This is important as it only took a few seconds for the temperature to drop from 98 to 92. Seeing the temperature immediately after giving the test is critical.

Teensavers Temp Strip Before Test

This is the first item that needs to be looked at after test is given.

The Teensavers temp strip after the test

Notice the 92 is slightly illuminated. This green dot gives you real-time accuracy on the temperature of the specimen. If your test does not have a green dot within seconds after taking it, a foreign substance may have been used.

Why is temperature so important?

Because it practically ensures that the specimen used in the test was from the human body at that given time.

Believe it or not, but kids buy a lot of urine. They get it from friends, and they buy it online. The hope that parents use an inexpensive foreign test found online that doesn’t detect temperature.

The Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit prevents teens from substituting urine as their own.

The other trick drug users do is have a friend or sibling go before them in the toilet, and not flush. Then the teens dip the cup in the toilet and use diluted urine.

The temperature strip would catch this, as the tempertaure of the specimen decreases rapidly after voiding into the cup.

The other thing you need to look for is to make sure that2 lines are present in these tests. The first line is a control line. That line ensures that the test wasn’t adulterated.

What will teens use to adulterate a test? That answer is as easy as what do you have in the area where your child is taking the test.

Typically that’s a family bathroom.

I’ve already mentioned the toilet a a source. There’s also a bath/shower/sink faucet.

Hand soap, perfume, and eye drops are also among the substances substituted for urine.

How can you be sure your teen used only his or her urine?

There’s a reason why the Teensavers Home Drug Test is easiest to use and easiest to read.

This is a completely negative 12 panel test

2 lines indicate negatives. The first line is the “control” line which assures that the test was taken accurately with human urine and no other foreign substances. The second line indicates a negative result.

This test screens for marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, amphetamine, pcp, opiates, ecstasy, benzodiazepines, barbituates, oxycodone, methadone, and tricyclic antidepressants.

You will see the middle four drugs here are PCP, MDMA (ecstasy), BAR (barbiturates), and BZO (Benzodiazepines).

They all have two lines. They are all negative tests.

What if the line is faint? Any sign of a secondary line is a negative result.

The one thing you want to look for is a test with no lines.

That is an adulterated test, which means there is a substance that is not urine in the test cup.

You would need to rescreen your teen in the event you get a test with no lines whatsoever.
