So I decided to give my soldering iron a try today. Only problem is that it has been used before and has traces of solder stuck to the tip. I'm assuming this is probably not a good thing health-wise. Do you think it would be ok if I just let it heat up and get as much of that off as I can? (I'm hoping most of it will melt off) Is there any way I can guarantee it safe to ignite bud with, or would it just be better at this point to buy a new one?

It's been heated and what not. I don't see anything that appears to be stuck on the tip, but it does have some silvery looking places on it. Think it should be good?

You replace your butane lighter with a flame-less soldering iron. Less THC wasted.

When its cool you can get some sandpaper and sand the solder off and make the tip shiny again. Then just clean it off and should be good to go.

You're only suppossed to use the soldering iron with the ceramic tip in it's core. Assuming it's a ceramic tipped unit. You'll need to take off the outer, metal piece.
