No matter whether you are using homemade methods or purchased a kit from market Urine should be first urine of the morning. It is because urine at that time is less diluted & gives better results.
  • Take due care in selecting Mug/Container– The Mug/Container selected for homemade tests needs to be carefully selected. It is highly preferred to use plastic Mug/Container instead of metal Mug/Containers as metal may react with either the ingredient or urine & result might get changed.
  • Placement of Mug/Container– Another important factor to be taken care of is the placement of Mug/Container. Mug/Container must be kept on a flat & smooth surface, do not touch or shake the Mug/Container again & again it may affect the reaction which is happening with ingredients inside the Mug/Container.
  • Clean & dry Mug/Container– Always use clean & dry Mug/Container. It should be completely free of dust particles.
  • When testing with Bleach & vinegar be outside the bathroom as it can cause suffocation due to fumes from the mixture.
  • Always wear your protection gear– While attempting test with bleach, baking soda or vinegar, always wear gloves on hands & cover your mouth & nose with mask or cloth piece, as these react with urine & cause allergy on touch & suffocation on inhaling.
  • Dispose the Mug/Container– As soon as you are done with the homemade DIY pregnancy test dispose of the Mug/container. It contains urine & other ingredients so it needs to be thrown out immediately.
