Pretty darn good – Soldering Remover Ball - Color Assorted - Color Assorted (Large) Reviews

This is a better tip cleaner than the sponges I've used before - no water! The tip stays hot, so work goes faster and more evenly as a result.
Doesn't come with a metal cup to anchor it. Definitely needs mechanical support to contain it. I used a glass ashtray.
Another reviewer wrote "keep your pants on when soldering." I agree - it's important with this ball because it's springy and could fling a little ball of solder onto your lap.
Two soldering "best practices" are to keep the tip clean and hot. This ball helps with both.
