    I usually use a De-Soldering Bulb. You can squeeze several times to get the solder off, without moving anything.

    I tried various wicks (sort of a spool of copper mesh wire braid), but never had any success with it.
    The bulb worked fine for me.

    This guy is really terrible with the bulb.

    The one I showed you was the DeLuxe model with the LED magnifier.
    The other ones with just a mgnifying glass are 1/2 the price too.
