Your drug stores sell rosin?  Ours sells Doritos, but I don't think
counts.  :)
  Umm, yeah.  For some reason that gave me the mental image of trying
to use sun tan lotion as flux. ;)
I sometimes use citric acid (in solid crystalline form) as a flux
and citric acid is being sold in drugstores too :)
  Hmm, I'll bet that smells good, too! :-)
