Hi,

Thanks for this question. Actually baking soda would not show up on a urine drug test however it will alter the ph of your body which MAY reflect in the ph of the urine (depending on how much baking soda you ingest, however in most cases it wont affect the urine test). So you can use baking soda as it wont show up on the drug test HOWEVER there is no scientific peer reviewed evidence that baking soda actually works to remove meth from your system. This is a common myth which is prevalent in society now, meth will be removed from your system once it is metabolized by the body. Using baking soda wont help in getting it out of the body more quickly.

But to answer your question, you can use baking soda as it wont be detected on the drug test.
