Cleaning The Terminals

First thing you need to do after finding the terminals of the component you want to desolder is to clean them with isopropilic alcohol (a.k.a. isopropanol) using a toothbrush. Just wet the toothbrush with isopropilic alcohol and brush the terminals. Do not use regular alcohol.
