The Importance of Drying in PCB Cleaning

There are four steps to successfully cleaning PCBs (printed circuit boards). Wet, scrub, rinse and dry. The wet, scrub and rinse operations are obvious. Wet the board with a pure cleaning fluid. Scrub it using a good quality scrubbing brush. Then rinse it off with more clean fluid.  However, the dry step is often overlooked or in some instances, completely left out of the PCB cleaning plan.
