That's what I do with my regular caps: Take them out of the Starsan and just place the caps on the bottles loosely. I don't crimp them after all bottles are filled.
When I use the O2-absorbing kind, I just give them a quick spray from a StarSan-filled spray bottle immediately before placing it on the bottle. I will also seal the cap immediately. It's extra work, but since their absorption capacity is fairly limited, it produces better results.
