    Lol, we had a Drano party last night. Mine stayed a very pretty blue so it says that I am having a boy. My family swears by it. It has never been wrong before I guess we will see next month sometime

    Anyone else ever done this or know anyone who has? What were the results? Were they accurate?

    I REALLY hope it is right!!

    I have never heard of this how do you do it??
    BabyOops09 responded:
    You mix equal parts drano with your urine. If it turns and orangy brown its a girl. If it turns blue its a boy. If you decide to do this test PLEASE have someone else mix them for you. The fumes are very strong and don't need to be inhaled. You pour the drano in a glass first and the urine on top of it. But make sure you can throw the container away after OH!! And it has to be the original crystal kitchen drano. Not the liquid kind!
