Default How to remove plastic/rubber liner from bottle caps?

If anyone has an idea I would offer you my firstborn for it (ok, so
there is no firstborn) I am seriously stuck on this one. I have tried
boiling them and also using acetone nail polish remover (both ideas I
found on the internet).

If the bottle caps have a thin round rubber ring I can boil them and
then pull them off. However, if the lining covers the whole inside of
the bottle cap I can't get it off - basically I keep trying to rip at
it and get nowhere fast.

Please help!!!!

Thanks,

Laurianne

I don't know how to clean them but you can get blank ones that are
already clean here,

Laurianne -- I'm not even slightly intriqued; just nosy. Why?

I am using them for jewelry creations and am finding that if I leave
the "ring" on them that it shows through the back of my picture/sticker
etc. once I pour on the resin. They look much better with the plain
bottle cap.

Thanks!
