delipidation for 2D maps

Wouldn't a TCA (trichloroacetic acid) precipitation work?  I have no
experience with lipids - we were using fruit flesh.
We also found that the Amersham-Pharmacia Multiphor system with the little
loading cups gave us the best results for the first dimension. (no
affiliation - just learned the hard way)  The systems where you soak the
whole strip in a reservior with the sample is not an effective way to load
sample onto the strip.

I try to perform 2D maps of myelin proteins and have problems to load
sufficient amounts of protein to the first dimension strips because of the
high content of lipids in my samples.
Does anyone know an easy and reproducible procedure for delipidation.
Thank you very much in advance
