I've used the jelly jar/steel wool gadget for over 40 years...it's great.

Those were some great soldering tips Ron! Thanks! I wanted to tell you about a tip cleaner I discovered that works great. I saw the stuff they sell on Amazon that has steel wool in a snap closed container. Well, my 79 year old mom uses these things for scrubbing pots and dishes called Scotchbrite Stainless Steel Scrubbing Pads that are made from coarsely shredded stainless steel. I took one of them and stuffed it down inside a small jelly jar and it works great for cleaning the tip on my iron. Just push it into it over and over 2-3 times and the tip looks like brand new!
