The urinary system
The kidneys remove wastes from the body by producing urine, which is basically a mixture of water and whatever wastes your body needs to get rid of.

Urine is carried from the kidneys to the bladder by tubes called ureters. Urine collects in the bladder and, when the bladder is full, exits the body through another tube, called the urethra. A healthy adult produces about two liters of urine a day.

When the kidneys are working properly, they keep your blood free of wastes.
