Each box of MiTeGen's Paper Wicks
contains three hundred 28 mm long, high-quality, tapered paper wicks.
Size 15 and Extra Fine (XF) wicks are ideal for removing liquid from around your crystal whereas Fine (F) and Medium (M) wicks are used for cleaning the polymer tips of Mitegen's tools.
The thick end of these wicks fits into a standard 0.7 mm mechanical pencil, allowing you to steady your wicking motions. Cut back from the widest end using a razor blade so that the diameter fits into your 0.7 mm pencil. Then dip the other end in water, a detergent solution (e.g., Alconox or PEX) or in isopropanol, and gently stroke the polyimide from base to tip.
The key to minimizing risk of damage is to have the width of the wick's tip comparable to or larger than the polyimide width.
