    Gday guys
    Swim was wondering if there is a test kit available to test the purity of meth or amph?
    Swim would rather not do a wash for fear he might stuff it up, swim also googled fiercly and could only find test kits that bring up traces of the stuff and also found the ectasy testing kits that only show that the stuff is there but not purity
    anyhow any help would be great
    cheers

    Bleach test

    Take a small cup of Clorox and drop in a pinch of meth. If it jumps around in the cup of bleach than it is good. I'm not sure the acuracy of this test but its the only one I have heard of.

    One way to test the purity of your product is the melting point test.....

    The best one I know is to use a black fluorescent tube. Some people are aware of it, but few know how to use it properly.

    Marquis and Simon's reagents (sold as "ecstasy"-testing kits) are both good tests for the presence of amphetamine and/or methamphetamine, though not necessarily the purity. Both will produce an identical result with Marquis, and while meth will react with Simon's, amphetamine will not.

    I have to ask, for those that recommend the bleach test, can you describe what causes this reaction to take place and on what scale do you determine purity? If you can then you should know that the bleach test may rule out some substances, but it is not fool proof. And in my opinion worthless as it is unable to show any factual % of purity, it's purely guess work.

    The easiest way for average "Joe" to get an idea of the amount of worthless goods in his goody bag is to utilize the solubilities of desired product. And if necessary follow with melting point. If one is not capable of such a simple task I would highly recommend learning more about their product!

    In reality the easiest way to test methamphetamine purity at home assuming you have no lab equipment is to simply put it in a pipe and smoke it. I'm not sure if that's you're think but since your asking I doubt that would be a problem. The way it vaporizes, tastes, and recystallizes are all good indicators of purity. But this also depends on how much experienced you have with smoking meth.

    If your looking for an exact percentage of purity I can tell you there's no real simple method for that. I've tried many including the bleach test and it was basically all a waste of time.
