 Hi,  here is a protocol to remove SDs from electro eluted protein.
 After elution lyophilize the sample and resupend in 100ul of water.
2. Add 400ul of methanol and vortex it, and spin at 9000g/10 sec.
3. add 100ul of chloroform (equilbrated with water), vortex and spin for
   10 sec at 9000g.
4.Add 300ul of water to effect phase seperation, vortex and spin 9000g
  for 1 min.
5. precipitated protein will be in the interface.
6. remove the upper phase andadd 300 ul of methanol vortex and spin at
9000g for 2 min
7. Remove the sup and wash with 95% methnaol, spin 9000g 2 min and air
drythe pellet.

 i hope this helps and i am sorry for replying to your query late.
 i have a protocol for estimating SDS in protein samplefor  which i have
 to hunt for in my books. if u need it let me know
