    Don't worry about him drinking Meths, the purple colouring is there to make you vomit, the possibility of him doing it more than once is so slim as to be negligible

    Before you ask no I've never drunk the stuff myself but I know a few people who tried

    The purple colour is a dye. Bitrex is one of the commonest additives in methylated spirits to prevent it being drunk; there are others.

    Industrial meths doesn't have the dye (although you need a licence from HMRC to buy it) but still has all the other additives.

    Default Correction Fluid works great

    The Pentel micro correct has a ballpoint pen type tip which allows you to place the fluid where it is needed, it is solvent based so it flames off or evaporates before soldering takes place.

    Finally it has a weight in the pen (like the ball bearing in spray paint cans) so it can be resuscitated after a long period of sitting in the drawer, when needed.

    When applied to a solder joint which you want to protect, the rest of the piece can be heated to red heat without the protected joing coming unsoldered.

    When you've finished soldering - chuck the piece straight in the pickle while it is still hot - the correction fluid marked areas will flake off straight away, needing next to no cleaning up.
