Has anyone ever tried this? My friend was going to when she found out she was pregnant, but I think she ended up deciding against it. I'm not sure I'd want to try it. I've heard that the fumes can be dangerous (obviously) to the mother and the un born child.
Drano / Draino Gender Prediction Method
This baby gender prediction method has been around for decades, and makes it's rounds regularly on the web as a potential way to find out what gender your baby is.
The recipe to test this method is below, but it is NOT advisable that you try it as it produces very toxic fumes and the results are unreliable.
The drano / draino gender test should be performed after the 4 month of pregnancy.
This test must be performed outside in a glass / jar that holds can hold twice as much urine as you use as there is a bubbling, smelly, and caustic chemical reaction when you add your urine to the crystal drano.
What is needed for the Drano / Draino Gender Prediction Test:
Approximately 2 tablespoons of CRYSTAL Drano
Medium glass or glass jar. It is best to just throw the mixing glass away after performing this test.
Two to Three ounces of urine, preferably the first morning urine.
Take the test materials outside. Add your urine to the glass jar with the crystal drano in it. There will be a rapid chemical reaction and it is best to stay well away from the glass jar while the fumes are being produced.
When the reaction stops, observe the color of the test.
If the mixture darkens to a brownish color within the first 10 seconds - It is a boy.
If there is no darkening or color change after 10 - 15 seconds - It is a girl.
When you are done, you will need to carefully dispose of the mixture as it will have a very bad smell and still be very caustic.
The color results above are not very reliable as you will find many different variations of the colors in the results with people interpretting them all differently. This is not a reliable way to determine the gender of your baby, and could have serious side effects to the mom to be if the fumes are inhaled or the mixture gets on the skin. NOT RECOMMENDED as a baby gender prediction method.
