Re: Solder Rosin Cleanup
zippo lighter fluid (naptha) or alcohol. There's ethanol and isopropyl or something like that. Both are supposed to work. If there is just a little rosin residue, I don't think that harms anything so you could leave it if just a little messy. Try q-tips for small bits, paper towels for larger. If the thing that you wipe with (q-tip, pap.twl, etc.) isn't enough to remove all the rosin, it seems to just spread it around (you can see it if it's still white). Be careful since the stuff is flammable! You want a smokin' tone, and not a smokin' house... ;)
