Default boil or soak in Sanitizer

what do you guys do and why? Do you just soak your bottle caps in sanitizer or do boil. again as with anything in homebrewing reading about not to boil caps because it may damage the gasket. What say you guys.

happy brewing,

Mike

How is this an electric brewing question?

Soak. You don't want to boil, you run the risk of warping the plastic inner gasket on the caps. And if you do that, you'll get leaks.
