The chain and fingers for our Wave solder is getting a large amount of residue from the flux (high dissolved solids) we are using. Any recommendations for products that can clean polymerized flux.

We roll ours up, fingers and all, and soak them for about an hour in a solution of water and DOMINATE (heavy duty degreaser) you can order from Grainger. They come out looking brand new every time!

We use a power washer, blow dry, then lightly oil the links with mineral oil. Works great
