Default Removing bottlecap liners

Is there a trick? I am doing the scrap and pull and scrap and pull method and while it works...ish, I'd love a trick to make it easier.

The easiest way I have found, for me, is to hold the bottle cap with tweezers (it gets hot) in one hand and in the other hold my lighter flame to the underside on the rubber for a few seconds and then with my other tweezers, pull out the rubber. Works good for me and doesnt take long...HTH .

Do you have a glass top stove? I turn and eye on low lay the bottlecaps on them then use pliers and the liner pulls right out easily.

I don't have the electric stove, but I do have a lighter. I will have to give that a try.

Thanks so much

I never had luck with boiling, they cooled off too fast when I took them out of the water. The only thing that works for me is putting them on a hot surface like the coffee pot base or in the oven on a cookie sheet a few at a time.

Yep the coffe pot pad works the best. When I initially put them on the coffee burner pad, I wait a few seconds before placing each one on there. That way then once I get started I just go around in a circle picking up a cap and removing the liner. Each time I pick one up, I put another down. This gives me an ongoing set to work from without any of the caps getting to hot. Hope that makes sense.

That sounds like the kind of trick that I was looking for. Now, I need to buy a coffee maker with a heating element. I have one of the thermal carafe ones that doesn't have an element underneath it.

Off to shop I juswt needed an excuse

my husband heats them up with a heat gun that I have for embossing stamps, (back in my stamping life) and then he pulls them out with tweasers!
