Have you guys ever heard about soldering flux ? It's a fluid that makes the solder stick to the pins while it's hot, instead of splashing and such. Two drops and some heat is enough to make the solder flow to the whole pins, and the soldering iron tip, releasing the short circuit.
Also, using the flux with desoldering braid, makes it a LOT more efficient while sucking the solder away from the board.
