If you think that it’s somewhat hard to eliminate, utilize your scissors to chop down the sides of the cup and strip the plastic away. You can utilize a rough square or a piece of sandpaper to smooth the outside and top edges of your pot out on the off chance that you’d like, yet I sort of enjoyed the regular surface my solid pot had, so I left mine.
