Benjamin,  
 
I keep a finger nail polish bottle of acetone one my bench with a bit of violin rosin dissolved in it. I brush (on a cleaned and scratched) a bit on before I solder and it really helps.

    The violin rosin acts as a non-corrosive flux? (Never heard of that one before- I'll have to try it out!)

Yes the rosin works fine! But I suggest denatured alcohol has a solvent instead of acetone (a bit too strong for my taste).

It's alright, Charles. Just don't eat it and you'll be fine.

Well, I was thinking of any plastic and or painted surfaces, which the acetone would devour much more rapidly than the denatured  
alchohol, but....  
 
Does it mix well with gin?
