What type of solder wick do you use for cleaning up QFP pads after desoldering ? Many brands only wick well at the end, but not when laid flat over the pads.

Swisstone brand (made in US) works best for me, but the suppliers seems to play hard to get.

While we're unfamiliar with Swisstone, we accept: * Techspray Solder-Wik * Chemtronics Soder-Wick * NTE Solder Wick

All of these [and Swisstone] look basically the same. We wonder if maybe they're all made by the same source and branded differently.
