What is a good stamp remover?

I need to remove stamps from an envelope, how can I go about doing this?

Turn the envelope face down above a steaming kettle for one minute. Withdraw the envelope from the steam and "Voila! " the stamp can be easily removed!

Hello, I was a collector of Stamps for years, and I removed them this way: I used a bowl with cooking water, and cut the piece of paper with the stamp of the envelope. Than I put it in the bowl, and waited for an half hour. After that, the stamp is very easy to pull of with your nail.

The best way is to steam it off. Use tongs to hold the envelope over steam for 30 seconds or so then check to see if the edge of the stamp is loosening. It may need another 30 seconds if it has been stuck on the envelope for a while.

Stamp shouldn't be removed by force. Apply water on the stamp and keep for a while. The stamp will lose contact with the envelope. It will easily come out.
