Default cleaning soldier flux from wort chiller I built??

I just built myself a wort chiller as per Bobby M's video on youtube, turned out great, just wondering the best way to get the soldier flux off the copper? I want to make sure its all gone, probably not the best stuff to be dissolving in beer... Thanks

A good solvent like Isopropyl Alcohol should do the trick.

That is, if you're trying to remove solder flux. I have no idea how to remove soldier flux

Solvent should handle the flux, but I'd be careful with the soldiers.

i circulated some hot oxacilic acid thru my heat exchanger after i soldered it up and it got just about everything off. iso alcohol should work as well.

heat makes everything clean better, remember.
