Remove endotoxin?

I have recently had low efficiency transfections using plamids made
by alkaline lysis /phenol extraction/ and PEG precipitation. I saw
a blurb from Quagen suggesting that endotoxin contamination may be
a significant contributor to such low efficiency. I grow my plasmids
in end- bugs. Aside from this (and purchasing a relatively expensive
kit ) , is there a (or some) ways to remove endotoxin??
