Subject: Blu-Tack

I have recently come across a manuscript which has had the parchment
leaves stuck together using small pieces of Blu-tack.  On removal a
faint stain is still visible, presumably from the oils used in its
make-up.  Has anyone had experience in removing such stains from
vellum or parchment?
