Default Fluxes in Europe

Simple question, cause it seems that all the flux related threads are from people in the US

Where is everyone getting their fluxes from in the EU? Unfortunately my country is small and I can't find anyone, so the only option seems to be to buy online and get it shipped. The stores I found have ridiculous shipping costs.

I've been using Mechanic stuff from China, however it's full of rosin and becomes a mess and a nightmare to clean.

@stj, always to the rescue

Paste flux for soldering. Not sure if I understood your question correctly.

Thanks. I came across TME before, and it's good. It's however not worth shipping a buy a single tube from them... makes sense to order a couple of items then the shipping cost can be justified Although, the shipping doesn't seem to be high either (maybe I'm used to the super low shipping from China)
