Hello to all,
Just curious if anyone has tried using vaseline instead of rosin flux?
Does it work? They have a similar feel... vaseline is cheaper, but I
haven't tried it.
Also, has anyone use rubbing alcohol instead of flux remover?
Again, I haven't tried it. But flux remover seems to "feel" like
rubbing alcohol (which again, is much cheaper).
Or, does anyone know of cheaper alternatives (e.g. household/medicine
cabinet products) to rosin flux and flux removers?
Rosin Flux is mostly made up of petroleum, but petroleum jelly is not a replacement for rosin flux
