A desolder braid also known as solder Wick is used to absorb and remove solder. The connection is heated with a soldering iron until solder liquefies and gets absorbed by the braid. This is the same wick we use in our shop and on all our youtube repair videos. The braid is thick and holds together very well during use unlike cheap braids fall off easily. We buy the braid in bulk. Packaging is done at our location. Braid length is 10ft x 0.25cm.
