Oops! Help!

Fired 10 rounds of .45-90 BP today. Came home and immediately dropped all ten cases on hot soapy water, rinsed, and dried in the oven. You're right, I missed a step. Tried to decap them after they were dry and they were stuck. They're soaking in Windex w/ vinegar, any ideas?

Good job...I only used the oven once to try drying BP or any Brass... I put um imn a bottle of soapy water where I'm shootin' BP 45/70's , ,45Colt, or .38spl ... rinse shake dry a sit in the Gunshop till dry enough then into a vibrating case cleaner. Haven't had a baked primer problem since.
