I immerse it in vinegar until the color changes, rinse and solder happily.

Have you noticed that old tined wire is generally difficult to solder and 
even if you sand the surface off, it remains difficult until you reach the 
copper?  I find this especially in final compartments.

Kindest regards Jim K9AXN
