Desoldering braids are made for desoldering components (hence the name),
but they are best used for mopping excess solder on a PCB. Combined
with enough flux on a clean PCB, desoldering braids effectively
remove excess solder that can otherise short two traces or pads.
For surface mount work, get the thinner type so it is easier to get to
