Depends what they are: if the mint are usable postage, soak 'em - although as much of Ireland's is now self-adhesive that is probably a non-starter.

Guidance will depend very much on what countries, what period, how many, etc. In other words, is it work making great efforts to save the mint. If not, then soaking them will produce used stamps, and ungummed unused stamps.

You need to read the story of "the brick". A Stampboards legend. :D
