There are several reasons why you may want to clean your urine. You may need clean urine for a drug or alcohol test or simply to feel better. If your urine is clean, it is a sign that your body tissues are healthy with no foreign substances in them. If you are looking to clean your urine, you will need to take some steps to remove the toxins from your system.

Step 1

Drink plenty of water. The International Sports Medicine Council recommends that you drink at least half as many ounces of water as you weigh in pounds, meaning if you weight 200 lbs., you should drink 100 oz. of water. Water helps move toxins or foreign substances out of your body and will clear up your urine.

Step 2

Add diuretic herbs to your diet to make your kidneys increase urine production. An increase in urine production will get any toxins out of your body more quickly. Diuretic herbs include parsley, horsetail and nettle.

Step 3

Exercise at least 30 minutes per day. Exercising allows your body to sweat, which will help eliminate the substances which make your urine "dirty." Hydrate as you exercise.
