  • This shit rocks! Never tried the specific brand, but I assume sparkfun chose decent solder tip cleaner.

    I used to carry it around with me to classes because university tips sucked until you cleaned them.

My iron is as clean as the day I bought it!

I love this stuff! My soldering iron is clean as when it was new. I’ve found I get the best results by pushing the hot iron (750 degrees F) into the cleaner, then wiping the iron on a damp sponge. I had poor results when I tried to clean the iron with brass wool - it seemed to really need to be wiped off (on a sponge) rather than scraped off (on brass wool).

Now that I know how to clean my soldering iron, soldering is a pleasure!
