Article Summary


If you have to pass a mouth swab drug test and you don’t have time to detox first, there are a few things you can do to improve your chances of passing. Try sucking on 2 or 3 sour candies 5 to 10 minutes before you have to take the test, since high levels of sugar and acid in your saliva can make drugs harder to detect. Chewing on citrus or cinnamon gum can help for the same reasons, plus it will stimulate your mouth to produce more saliva, which may dilute any traces of drugs. You can also make it harder for the test to detect drugs by swishing some hydrogen peroxide in your mouth for 30 seconds, then spitting it out. Don’t use an alcohol-based mouthwash, though, since this could create a false positive result for alcohol abuse. For tips on how to prepare for a mouth swab test in advance, read on!
