Keep your soldering tip fresh – Soldering Iron Tip Cleaner (Black) Reviews

It cleans the tip very good. Works better than a sponge (although I also use the sponge for a final cleaning just before retinning the tip).
Compared to a sponge the temperature of the tip doesn't drop a lot.
It's too light. A more heavy base would make sure that it doesn't move around when cleaning your tip. Now I put it against the wall so that it won't slide away.
The instructions are in Engrish, not English. But after three readings you get what they mean.
Make sure to clean the curls from time to time. Just take them out of the box and rub them lightly under clean running water.
Works great and doesn't cost much. Recommended for everybody who solders a lot.
