removal of PEG from DNA disolved in TE?

Can anyone tell me how to remove PEG from my DNA solutions?

I have lambda preps that I wish to cut and then spin in a microcon 100 to
separate the oligo linkers, but nothing goes through the filter because of
all PEG, I think  (the stock DNA solution is milky white and there is only
5-10 ugs of DNA in the restriction reactions that I am trying to spin.).
Chloroform extraction does not seem to do anything.

Thanks for any tips,
