Oh for sure, Ken.

As for the podcast, I can tell you which one it is. Its called Stamp Show Here Today and it's hosted by four people, at least two of which are professional stamp dealers, if I recall correctly, I have really been enjoying it: interesting podcasts and a zany sense of humour!

I come to this discussion late, but with an idea. The best method I’ve found for getting self-adhesive stamps off paper is orange. I use it in an air freshener called Pure Citrus. I suspect there’s a UK equivalent, but if not, or the like could ship it from the U.S. It may not be a bad investment, even with heavy shipping charges since it takes only one spray for a stamp. I spray the envelope side with three short presses (NOT the stamp), let it sit for three or four minutes to soak through, and then turn it over and gently peel off the stamp. You can rinse the stamp in water if you like. (Here in California we like the orange aroma.) I haven’t tried just squeezing an orange, but that might work. ‘Pure Citrus’ lists only one ingredient: ‘100% natural, delightfully fragrant oils found in fresh orange.’ (Odd, since it comes from orange-free Texas). Cheers from the colonies (would that we... never mind)
