My favorite flux remover is denatured alcohol , it doesn't react with
plastics and does not leave any residue and is not as nasty as the old
carbon 'tet that we used to use when I was a young pup ( glad I didn't
use much of that stuff , its real nasty ) .

You can get denatured alcohol at most hardware stores in pint and gallon
sizes and it lasts a long time , I use an acid brush with the bristles
clipped short for cleaning , or if I have a real nasty mess ( water
damaged radio etc. ) I use an old toothbrush for good cleaning large
areas .

Menda makes a real nice dispenser that doesn't allow the liquid to dry
up when not in use or get contaminated by the dirty brush ....
