HELP: Stripping western blots

I'm trying to do sequential probings of a western blot with different 
antibodies and am having a tough time stripping the previous antibody 
off. I have been using a protocol which is essentially an acid (pH 2.2) 
glycine/NaCl/TX-100 wash, and it looks like less than 10% of the old 
primary Ab is coming off. What do people use out there? By the way, I 
develop with DUPont's Renaissance chemi. kit, so I could theoretically do 
many probings.

Thanks in advance!
