    Following prolonged discussions on the GoG forum, I now brew my own, citric acid (eBay, Wilko), deionised water (same, Tesco etc) to form a saturated solution, then add about a third by volume of IPA (not the beer..., eBay). Not expensive.

    It doesn’t seem to cause any corrosion or pitting of brass / copper / ns, though I guess it would with steel. It washes off in warm water, and smells nice when you solder using it. The only downside is that it does go quite sticky as it dries out.

    I used to use O Gauge on line flux but found if you didn't clean it properly it would turn green, but now I use Duncan Model's flux instead, it doesn't turn green no matter how long you use it.
