When I make copper sculptures I wire brush the end product to clean it up. I am now making some miniature copper sculptures and it is hard to get into the tight spots with a wire brush to clean the residue left from brazing. Is there a way that I can dip them into a liquid solution to get the brazing residue cleaned up and then wire brush the rest to clean it up? Would there be a simple solution of something like pool chemicals or house hold cleaners? I am not interested in getting into acids.

Hi everybody! I have a few qusetions regarding copper solder wire. Where could one purchase it? I have a Weller SP40L (120 V, 60Hz) soldering iron without a temperature control.
