well i mute out the strings below the one i am pulling off on by resting my index finger (which is usually the finger i use on the lower note) across them.

So if i was going to play 9p7, i would fret the 7 with my index and rest it across all of the strings below that one, so if my finger hits them when pulling off, it wont ring.

Try slightly plucking the string as you pull off (with the finger that you're pulling off with). I don't mean like directly pluck it, but pull off at an angle, not straight up. You'll get it in no time, trust me .

EDIT: Sorry, I misunderstood the question. Yea, just like the guy above said, mute the other strings with your finger. Although I really don't see why they would ring out unless you played them seconds before.

practice, its mostly all muscle memory, it will come with good practice.

and umm kind of barre the strings below to mute it.
