I use glycerin quite successfully. I get the solid glycerin suppositories -- sometimes the pharmacy keeps them behind the counter, but just ask for them. Here's how I do mine: I put a few glycerin sticks on a microwaveable plate, and melt them down. (About 20 seconds) I lay the stamps rubber-side down (this can be done for mounted or unmounted stamps), then put them back in the microwave for another 8 seconds. I take them out, let them cool off, and once the glycerin hardens again, the stamps can be pulled right out of it cleanly. You can instantly see the difference. If any glycerin clings, just brush it off. (I use an old toothbrush for this.) Works like a charm for me!

It's not as complicated as it sounds, and is kind of fun, actually!
