I'm working on my Christmas stamp collection and there are stamps here which have gotten glued together over time.

What's the safest way to get these separated again?

There are not many good ways of separating stamps that are stuck together. One way is to put them into the freezer for a few hours and then carefully try to pull them apart.

Another way is to soak them apart. Use warm water and soak a few stamps at a time. Let the stamps soak for ten to fifteen minutes. Then very carefully pull them apart. The stamps can be put down on colorless blotters to remain until they are nearly dry. When fully dry they can be drawn with a sharp bend across a smooth edge such as a ruler.

A third option is to use what is known as a stamp sweat box.
