Lots of videos for putting stitches on waste yarn, not any for slipping stitches off waste yarn. I try to use a thinner cotton yarn as waste yarn because it makes the stitches easier to slide. I've seen dental floss suggested but haven't tried that yet. Since the stitches are slipped off purlwise, I put them back on the needle purlwise while the waste yarn is still there. You can pull the waste yarn out at the end or after several stitches have been slipped to the needle. If the waste yarn gets hung up, just cut it and continue to pull it through. Sometimes it helps to put a little tension on the waste yarn by holding both ends so that it seems more like another needle and less loose and floppy. However, this requires creative use of several fingers or a third hand.
