I'll have to wait another two days for the last two parts to come in, but I'd like to start soldering now. I'm using 63/37 solder (RA flux, 2.2% flux), and I was wondering how long after soldering can I wait without cleaning the board before damage occurs? I'm pretty sure the "A" in "RA flux" means "activated". I think it's corrosive... Would it be safe to solder, wait for two days or even one whole week without cleaning, complete soldering, and [i]then[/i] finally clean the flux off the board with alcohol?
