Cellulose Sponge Container
by: Patrick

I took a 1 1/2" thick cellulose floor cleaning sponge and cut it into a circle slightly larger than an empty tuna or salmon can. Soak the sponge and press into the can. The sponge stays wet a long time. I put a piece of non-slip material on the bottom to keep it from sliding around.

Cleaning a Soldering Iron Tip
by: Rosie

I use a deep circular ashtray 3" in diam. and place two layers of celulose sponge in it with lots of water. That way the sponge doesn't dry out and when it gets dirty you can just flip it over and use the other side AND do that again with the bottom layer.

I like your idea. Before I wet the new sponge, I cut a hole in the center. I wipe my soldering iron in the hole. I find the sponge doesn't move around as much.

That's a great idea. Those little sponges in the soldering iron stand are hardly worth the effort of getting them wet. I'll have a look at WalMart to see if they carry them here. Thanks for the idea.
