I am always really paranoid when soldering that I might be positioning the whole household. To the point that I now only solder outside in the garden with an extension cable, which is super awkward. Also the problem with that is I live in Scotland
Where do most people solder?
What equipment do you use to stop lead contamination? (mat/open window with fan/face mask)
How do you clean up afterwards? (Wash hands, wipe down bench with disposable cloth, leave room unoccupied)
Once solidified, are the soldered joins still a source of contamination? (Should I be washing my hands every time I touch the electronics)
Am I being too paranoid? (I’ve got three young kids that lick/eat everything)
