Cleaning Electronic Parts Prior to Soldering

Q. We need to clean parts to be soldered prior to applying solder. Do you have recommendations?

A. To clean parts prior to soldering you need to consider what residues you are trying to remove from the parts and how you want to clean.  For general purpose oils and residue cleaning by manual, soak or ultrasonic cleaning methods, we recommend using a warm or hot 1% Liquinox solution followed by a thorough rinse.  If you want to remove surface oxides and brighten the parts, we recommend using warm or hot 2% Citranox solution followed by a thorough rinse.
