Kwik-Clean

Flux & Patina Cleaner

Eliminates 'White Mold' caused by flux and/or patina corroding your project.
No longer need to wash your project in water.  To neutralize the flux or patina, just spray on Kwik-Clean and wipe off.

Works on FOIL & LEAD

stained glass projects

Kwik-Clean is a liquid which wipes off with just a paper towel.  No need to use water, unlike the gel types of neutralizers.

Foil:
The Kwik-Clean solution is a liquid, not a gel.  So it goes under the foil (in the air pockets where patina can be hiding) and neutralizes the flux and patina.  This is the area where White Mold starts to form.

Lead:
The Kwik-Clean solution, when sprayed on the solder joint, easily rolls completely around the joint removing all the flux.  After the patina is applied, Kwik-Clean goes into the little pockets left in the putty and neutralizes any patina hiding there.

 

Clean up flux and patina without a sink or water hose.

No need to mix or dilute. After you have completed soldering one or both sides of your project, spray on Kwik-Clean. Typically, with a paper towel to clean the project thoroughly.

You may use the same paper towel or use a clean one to apply the patina. Mixing the Kwik-Clean with the Patina gives added cleaning of the flux and a finer tone on the patina.

After Patina is applied, clean again with Kwik-Clean.

Polish as you normally would.

On pieces where White Mold is already present: For problem climates where White Mold is rampant.

Steel wool off the White Mold.  Vacuum or use a magnet to remove all the Steel Wool fibers that have be left behind.  Clean with Kwik-Clean before reapplying the patina. Then apply your patina and clean again with Kwik-Clean. Polish.
