With a hot iron, you don't need to touch the solder at all.  Heat rises, so you should be passing the iron pretty closely under the solder (not touching it!) and it will soften and drip onto the spot you want it (you should be able to see it melt and be able to move the iron out of the way before it drips--less cleaning!).  I don't remember the wattage on that iron I used, but the concept should be the same with all solders, and somehow I doubt my 8th grade science teacher let us use a really hot iron, even all those years ago.
