Sponge is the past – Soldering Iron Tip Cleaner (Black) Reviews

posted by darkschneider on 03/22/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Excellent to clean the soldering iron, cleans better and faster than the sponge, with no water boiling after much use.
The price is excellent for an item usefull and durable.
It can be washed so its durability is uncertain but long, very very long.
Cons:
More weight or glued base would be great, because sometimes it has not enough strength when you pull the iron to separate by its own and you need to hold it with your hand or something else.
Other:
Follow the instructions of use, remember the tip rotation to clean it properly.
Bottomline:
Even using this, some micro-shaving can remain in the iron, so I RECOMMEND not to put aside the sponge totally. I recommend use this cleaner and then later pass the iron over the sponge to clean and let it totally smooth.
