Customer Question

I am being required to submit to an ETG test, also for a custody issue (same with the article here), and I want to know if there is any way I can pass it within 24 hours.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I had one drink yesterday afternoon, I found out this morning I have to test tonight

No that is not likely.

Studies show that the average detection time is from 25 to 50 hours.

There is no way to alter your test results.

With one drink, it is very unlikely that you test positive on this.

So you should be fine.

I would stay hydrated to be sure.

Also, many household products cause a false positive test like hand sanitizers
