I was buying some flux and I noticed a bottle with clear liquid that said
"No Clean Flux" Will this work like the regular Rosin flux? Is it better or
worse? It was $20.00 and I didn't want to end up poring it down the drain.

I wouldn't use it on anything electronic. I'm not quite sure of the brand,
but it's likely to be an aggressive action flux designed for say capillary
fittings on copper pipe and needs thorough washing off after use.

Regular rosin flux, is no clean. Some of the newer fluxes especially of
the non lead solders use an organic flux which is washed off with water.
Water then non statically and blown dry maybe with some amount of heat.

Ah - so it means you don't have to clean it off? I totally thought the
other way - that some of these aggressive fluxes are said to work without
any cleaning of the materials. Not that I'd trust them ;-)

Yup.
