Do i have to tin the whole tip? Answered

I got a new soldering iron and one of those tip tinner and cleaner tins from radioshack. The tip of the soldering iron is 1 inch long and when  i use the tinner only the vary tip gets tinned the rest is brownish black. Do just tin the vary tip with  the tinner or the whole tip?

Tin Tin the part of the Iron that you know how to use, that is how the
manufacturer assumed you would.

Just tin the tip.
Don't scratch the surface on anything other than a damp (not wet) sponge.
