  • Go to the store and buy a red cabbage. The size of the cabbage does not matter at all.

    Step
    2Cut the cabbage into big chunks. The smaller you cut the chunks, the better your results will turn out.

    Step
    3Boil some water on the stove and put in the chunks of cabbage.

    Step
    4Let the water and cabbage boil for about 10 minutes or so. When the ten minutes is up, remove it from the heat.

    Step
    5Grab a cup and go to the bathroom! Pee into the cup.

    Step
    6In a separate cup, mix 1 part of your urine to 1 part of the water that the cabbage was boiled in. No need to save the cabbage unless you want to eat it. It's pretty tasty, so you might want to eat it!

    Step
    7If the urine/cabbage water turns pink or red then this indicates a boy result! If the urine/cabbage water turns purple, this indicates a girl result

  • I just did it and it said girl. Well see in a few weeks if it was right. Just as a little extra fun I mixed some pineapple juice in with some more cabbage water since pinapple is the same color as urine and it turned red, mine was clearly purple. Maybe it does work
