  1. Hi Milly
    Every Sunday, look forward to receiving your posts.

    I have a comment/tip I have used for a few yrs now; has made a big difference in the cleaning of my projects. Picked it up on the net a few yrs ago.

    After soldering, of course clean with Kiwk clean; then squeeze on “Mom’s Carnuba Wax” (RED bottle @ Walmart; had to order on net this time as they do not seem to have on the shelf now); let sit 3-4 minutes; using paper towel, wipe until U no longer see black on the towel. Patina, then wipe off with paper towel; using “Never Dull”, shine until U R happy with the shine. Really lots of “hand work”, but, I feel worth it for the shine & the money saved buying the “glass company” same products for shine/cleaning.

  2. I enjoy receiving all your helpful tips Milly. I was wondering if you would consider doing something on ‘knowing when you tools are coming to the end of their lives’ or how to tell when some of you tools or equipment are no longer good? Just an idea . One example may be a spool of solder that I found – the ends were coroded- is this still good and if it is what should you do with it? Thanks

    • That’s a great idea Alison, thanks. I’ll put it on the list.
      As for your solder – try cleaning it with flux and it should be fine. Solder doesn’t have a shelf life, it just gets manky 🙂
