100% Brand New Soldering Sponge is suitable as replacements for old sponges. Use this to keep clean your soldering tip. Slightly moisten before use. When water is heated, the soldering iron will have the solder and the residue, the sponge will make the cleaning action easily absorbable.
This wet sponge is used to clean the corrosion on the tip of the iron. A dry sponge does nothing but damage the tip. Every time you pull the iron from the stand, it’s a good idea to swipe the tip on the sponge just to clean it off and get a nice silver tip – it will allow you to solder much more quickly and cleanly.
