Foo - Best way to un-stick photo negatives?

GAH! looking through old negatives and finding some are stuck together (were just sitting in envelopes for oh, 10-40 years...:notamused:).
any thoughts on how to separate them without destroying the images? In each case, it is only two strips of five frames stuck partially together.

Let them soak in some lukewarm water for a couple minutes. They should easily separate.

Can't you just soak them in a tub of cold water? If there is residue, clean carefully with iso. alcohol and swab.
If paranoid, use film stabilizer after soaking in water and separating.

edit: I believe Kodak says to put the negatives in a tub of cold water and into the freezer for 10 minutes and use stabilizer to further reduce chance of damage.
edit2: call B&H :D
