Can you remove properties with that?

(defun substring-no-properties (string from &optional to)
  "Return a substring of STRING, without text properties.
The substring starts at index FROM and ends before TO.
TO may be nil or omitted; then the substring runs to the end of STRING.
If FROM or TO is negative, it counts from the end."
  (let ((str (substring string from to)))
    (set-text-properties 0 (length str) nil str)
    str))
