Soak stuck-on cap in vinegar or ammonia

Q. My beautiful Waterford crystal salt shaker has a pull-off (not screw top) metal cap that has frozen on, and no amount of work will take it off. I have tried soaking it in water, even using a rubber gripper pad and pliers to pull it off. I think it is the salt that caused the freeze, because the pepper shaker cap comes off very easily. I don't want to ruin that nice cap, either. Waterford sent me a new cap, but it is too big.
