Here in the UK, I tend to prepare items for soldering using steel wool to rub down. That applies to the tip of the iron as well. (I’ve had the steel wool for years – I hope I can still buy it when the roll runs out). I noticed that you were handling the multicore solder, but said nothing about cleaning that. Again, I find a quick rub before use with steel wool clears any oil picked up from my hands and any oxydization, before I use it.

Thanks for sharing!
