Default Reheating/Reusing boiled bottle caps

I boiled too many bottle caps. Can I put them away for another day to sanitize/boil again, or do I toss 'em?

They are fine as long as you didn't ruin the seals on the inside. If they are ok, just stick them in boiling water or sanitizer again when it's time to bottle your next batch. But a lot of people don't go as far as boiling caps since it could potentially damage the seal and it's far easier to just dump a few dozen caps in a bowl of water with a sanitizer added.

Make sure they are dry before you store as they will rust.
