Question Removing the rubber part from bottlecaps...

I need ideas for removing the rubber part on the bottlecap. So far I've tried a lighter and placing them on the hot plate on the coffee maker. It isn't working out very well. Anyone have any other ideas?

never tried it but have read that others have used an embossing heat gun and then used tweezers to pull it out

If you have a heat gun, while holding the bottle cap with a pair of pliers, it gets really hot, heat the seal maybe15-20 seconds, then take another set of pliers of tweezwers, grap the seal and pull. You might be able to use a hair dryer to heat it up. To me this is the best way.

I gave up on this myself. I did find one thing that worked but figured that I would end up dying from the fumes. I used my chisel point on my woodburner & just ran it around the cap & it came right out. Worked well, quick but the fumes were nasty.

Thank you for the suggestions! I was accidently inhaling the fumes last night using the lighter method. That is some nasty stuff!
