    Why would it not be correct? "Remove" would be a bit more common, but "take off" is perfectly proper and doesn't sound especially strange. – Hot Licks Oct 21 '15 at 16:21

    If it is a bottle cap, you uncap it. Sometimes remove it. Sometimes take it off. Sometimes get rid of it. – user24743 Oct 21 '15 at 16:27

    But if it is a cork you uncork the bottle or remove the cork. If it is a screw-cap you unscrew it. – WS2 Oct 21 '15 at 16:37

    And for discount on the price of a purchase. And dozens of other things. "Disrobe" would be relatively unique to clothes. – Hot Licks Oct 21 '15 at 16:23
