I just held the board upside down. Melt the solder from below and it will drip down onto the iron tip. I then scraped the solder off of the iron tip with a spare, flat edged soldering tip.
Beware of dripping melted metal...a few of the bigger drops just fell off in globs.
(This was my first attempt at soldering/desoldering so idk if this is against protocol, but it worked perfectly for me on a small board!)
