Hi...can using hair products containing fruit extracts as well as the alochols used in hair products cause a false positive for etg alcohol tests?

Hi...can using hair products containing fruit extracts as well as the alochols used in hair products cause a false positive for etg alcohol tests?

Unless U drink UR: Shampoo, you should not test positive for an alcohol test. That's when you're drinking alcoholic beverages, not using shampoo. So you are safe! Fruit extracts also don't cause a positive alcohol blood test too. Thank goodness! Or we'd have a huge public health crisis on our hands with personal care products. Safe to continue using your fruit extract shampoos. ...Read more

Will Perming your hair twice before a hair strand test for alcohol remove etg? I have had 2/3 binges over 3 months.

Will Perming your hair twice before a hair strand test for alcohol remove etg? I have had 2/3 binges over 3 months.

I wouldn't: "depend" upon it!!! The Perm may break the sulfhydryl bonds (Sulphur containing bonds holding the protein "together" ( (THUS the "rotten egg" smell when the Perm is happeninv) but there is no reason to expect the follicles will "loose" alcohol/drug deposits!
Best bet......stop the binges. Admit you have a problem. And get help! ...Read more

How long does alcohol stay in a hair folicle test?

Likely that two single pour scotches 1 month prior combined with a single pour 2 weeks prior to a hair follicle analysis test positive for alcohol?

Likely that two single pour scotches 1 month prior combined with a single pour 2 weeks prior to a hair follicle analysis test positive for alcohol?

Very unlikely: If I'm reading things correctly you are referring to three drinks in a months time. Hair testing is much more sensitive for chronic moderate-heavy drinkers. Even the best hair testing would have less than a 5% chance of picking up a (+) test with your quantity of drinking. ...Read more

How long does alcohol stay in hair? (Hair follicle test) And does frequency of use have an effect? I go out for a few drinks one day a week.

How long does alcohol stay in hair? (Hair follicle test) And does frequency of use have an effect? I go out for a few drinks one day a week.

The hair test: Can give a "look back" up to 3 months! HOWEVER it is only of use for agencies/employers with ZERO tolerance for alcohol use. IT'S TOO SENSITIVE!!!!!
If you drink AT ALL and a potential EMPLOYER is requiring a PRE-PLACEMENT hair test FORGET ABOUT THAT JOB untillyou have had NO alcohol for 90 days!!!!!

MY opinion Only
Hope it helps!

How long does alcohol stay in your system and how does a etg urine test work?

How long does alcohol stay in your system and how does a etg urine test work?

Generally an: Hour for every drink you drink. So if you don't have the time to wait in a safe place after drinking or use dd. The etg test can still be positive 3-5 days after intake because it tests for longer acting metabolites.
Be really careful, if you are trying to stay a step ahead of the law. Testing gets better quickly. A woman should only drink 1 drink/day, and only if your apo e is not a 3/4 or 4/4. ...Read more

ETG test: Is there a list of pers. Care ingredients that cause/yield incidental exposure to alcohol or its breakdown products? Is Phenoxyethanol one?

ETG test: Is there a list of pers. Care ingredients that cause/yield incidental exposure to alcohol or its breakdown products? Is Phenoxyethanol one?

Don't know of a list: But phenoxyethanol would not be on it in any case. Ethanol is NOT absorbed through intact skin, and in this product, the ethanol is complexed with a benzene ring that does not allow it to become free. Only alcohol containing mouthwashes that are swallowed, and skin sanitizers that are inhaled can cause positive ETGs. If a sensible cut-off (250-500 ng/ml) is used, this eliminates most of them. ...Read more

Will I pass an ETG alcohol test if it's been 135 hours since my last drink, or 120-128 hours since I began sober (last drink 5pm Sat, Test Fri Morning?

Will I pass an ETG alcohol test if it's been 135 hours since my last drink, or 120-128 hours since I began sober (last drink 5pm Sat, Test Fri Morning?

Should: Enough time has expired for ETG to have been excreted.
However, you should not be taking alcohol at all. Alcohol is a poison that never did anybody any good, ever.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

I take a etg test 2x a week. I tested positive for alcohol 1x a week for 3 weeks in a row. Gcms neg. Can cetearyl alcohol cause a positive on a etg test?

False positive ETG: Ethyl gluglucuronide (etg) is a breakdown product of ethyl alcohol. It is a good test used to confirm sobriety because it is present in urine much longer than ethanol.

Although it is most sensitive for ethyl alcohol, the test can produce a positive result if sufficient amount of other alcohols are consumed/absorbed which are also broken down by the body into ethanol and then into etg. ...Read more
