Do try this at home

Jane Greig of the Austin, Texas, American-Statesman recently got this question from one of her readers.

Q: Please advise the easiest method of removing stamps from envelopes. Is there a way using the microwave?

Her response...."The microwave method begins with two drops of water on the stamp. Microwave on high for 20 seconds. I tried it. The stamp came off, albeit not cleanly."

She also made this comment which I found a bit strange, "Some stamp collectors remove the glue from stamp backs to decrease the stamps' attraction to insects (they love to munch on glue)."
