It's still probably the best known "solder wick" brand.
Soder-Wick is now a registered trade mark. It makes you wonder if the
spelling was intentional (a joke?, or a way to differentiate?), or just a
genuine spelling mistake at the time?

What I can't work out is why Chemtronics make Soder-Wick and Chem-Wick when
there is little difference in price point and Soder-Wick works a lot better.

   I prefer the wet wick method.  Dip the end of some small copper braid
into Kester RMA flux and apply the hot soldering iron.  The dry wick all
has a problem of the flux breaking off the braid as it is handled.

  One thing that helps is to leave about 1/16" of the used wick when you
trim it. That allows you to transfer the heat to the joint faster, yet
wick away the old solder.
