Possibly the usual 100 mM glycine pH 2.5 stuff. Works for most, but not
all antibodies. See the booklet of the ECL kit or the antibody book for 
details. Basically, you soak your blot in 100 mM glycine pH 2.5 (or lower?)
for some time and then wash extensively with PBS. In my hands, heating
in bME works better, though.
