is it correct, if I use 'take off the bottle cap' meaning as unstop the bottle cap'?

thank you so much :)

    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.

    If it is a bottle cap, you uncap it. Sometimes remove it. Sometimes take it off. Sometimes get rid of it.

    But if it is a cork you uncork the bottle or remove the cork. If it is a screw-cap you unscrew it.

    And for discount on the price of a purchase. And dozens of other things. "Disrobe" would be relatively unique to clothes.
