Re: PCB Cleaner

I have used alcohol solutions in the past and always felt like it was noy completely clean, just because of the way the board looked.
I had used small amounts of acetone before to spot clean but was always afraid of using it exclusively.
When I ordered my first radio kit from Elecraft, I called Elecraft and ask one of their engineers what they used to clean boards. He told me they used acetone.
I have since switched to using acetone exclusively. I keep a jar with a lid on it that is large enough to contain 'Q-Tips' in it and put acetone in the jar.
Using the acetone soaked Q-Tip's cleans the boards spotless. I solder a few parts, then clean those spots, repeating until the board is complete.
