Default Misti and stamp stick issues

Is there a trick to keeping the stamps stuck?
I have a Tim Holtz stamp platform and love it. I fought the urge to get one for for years until I tried a friends.
The MISTI and SU's platforms look even better as they have a few more features. Having the platform has _almost_ convinced me to unmount all of my stamps! And, I too, have had issues with certain stamps not sticking -- have tried cleaning well, a bit of chap stick (helps, but is messy), lining my blocks and platform hinges with clear inexpensive plastic sheeting from Walmart (pulls off sometimes when I remove the stamp), and lastly, Aileen's Tack it over and over. Aileen's seems to be the best- even on my older SU unmounted rubber stamps which never stuck!
