  • it is said that you use equal parts pee and drano, like 3 oz of each, and if the color is red, yellow or no change in color, its a girl, any other color is a boy. you HAVE to use drano crystals only! not the liquid. we didnt know it was suposto be the crystals and we used the liquid, well, it just fuzzed up and didnt do any thing. so im woundering if this really works. you can google "Drano Pregnancy Test" and it will come up there. - Writter

  • This has been going around for over 25 years. Like most moms back then I tried it. This was before routine ultasounds for everyone. They only did U/S if there was a problem. All three times it came out 'boy'. The last time I was saying, oh this is such BS, I just KNOW i'm having a girl. LOL...well my 'girl' was born with boy equiptment. You can't do it with the liquid. Don't pour the urine into the crystals inside. The fumes are bad. We always had my husband mix it and I stood back. It was accurate for me, both of my cousins, and my sons two children.

  • DO NOT DO THE DRANO TEST!!! They sell gender tests at Walgreens (or probably any store). Don't risk the health of your babies- spend the extra cash for an actual at home gender test or wait a few weeks for the ultrasound.
