It is non-toxic, can be sent by post and there are no disposal problems. It can be put down any drain.
Mix 40gm of salt with 1 litre of water. Immerse the brazed joints for approx 30 minutes. Remove and rinse with cold water to leave a component clean and free of flux residues.
Although non-toxic the salts are irritating to the eyes, and skin. In case of contact with eyes wash with plenty of water and seek medical advice. Salts contain Citric Acid.
