Got it. Only ones that is "dry" were had water soluble flux and was
washed off properly. Yet those "dry" boards made resoldering jobs
tedious because I have to buff off oxidization on component leads.
Those that had old fashioned flux and left on was easier to work with
and kept solder "fresh" looking.
