Solder wick is handy for desoldering components and cleaning up those DIY soldering jobs. Simply pull out a enough wick for the task and gently press the wick together to expand the braid. Then place the wick on the solder you'd like to remove and heat with a soldering iron. The wick will attract solder and those little blobs-n-bits can be picked up by lightly moving the heated wick around.

Once a portion of the wick is filled with solder, cut it off and repeat.

  1. Review by Josh - Its so good it sucks!! verified purchaser

    I have tried a few types of desolder wick and this one has been the best so far and sucks up solder with ease. Will definitely buy it again when I run out. (Posted on 5/09/2014)
