Ok, guys... Here is how them drinks work:
Simple - Dilution
Or in other words... They work by having you flood your body with water. This dilutes the amount of THC metabolites that will be found in your urine (as your urine will be mostly water).
Under normal circumstances (IE, if you were to do this without drinking the "juice", but just drank mad water instead), your creatine levels (as well as other shit) would rat you out - and they would know you were flushing your system.
When you drink one of these "Detox" drinks - you're not really clean. The metabolites in your system are just diluted substantially (usually enough to trick the test). The drink works by making your piss look like normal - undiluted piss. It replaces the creatine, and other crap that would normally rat you out.
If you follow the directions on the bottle EXACTLY, and don't smoke for a good amount of time before the test, you should be OK... Exercising, green tea, and other such methods that increase your metabolism are all good ideas, as they will help lower the levels in your body, and make it more likely that the drink will dilute them enough to not be detected. You would want to stop doing this a couple days before the test, though - as they actually (temporarily) increase the amounts of metabolites found in your system (increased metabolism = increased rate of THC being burned out of your fat = more metabolites in your piss).
DT's work based on levels. Each place has their own guidelines as to what constitutes a "hot" test (ie, how many nanograms of metabolites per ML of urine). If your nanograms are below this level, you will test as clean, if they go above, you test as hot. Dilution works by lowering the amount of nanograms per ML of urine.
