This accessory is used to clean the tip of a soldering iron, and can be a more effective alternative to chemical or water-based products.
The brass wool construction efficiently removes solder residue, without causing rapid temperature changes in the tip. This helps to prolong tip life when compared with using a damp sponge. It also means that your iron spends less time reheating after cleaning, so you can clean the tip more often between joints.
The wool comes in a heavy-duty holder with non-slip rubber base.
Take care when using brass wool, as cleaning the iron too fast or carelessly may cause hot solder residue to splash around the area. Always wear eye protection when soldering.
