What are the conditions of your digests? the shorter the incubation the
better, and pH is better if acidic, do we agree?
I'd say it depends on the threshold of what you decide it is DNA-free RNA. 
We tested a commercial kit with GuTh + LiCl plus centrifugation trough Cs,
but still there was DNA, and a low yield of RNA.

More suggestions?
