Loosen them completely off the tuning pegs and push the "white things" out by reaching in through the soundhole.

Epiphone Sheraton w/ Seymour Duncan JB and SH-1 '59
Fender 1985 Made in Japan Stratocaster

they have to come out eventually, just try to be as gentle as possible

Or if you have a peg winder, there's normally something on there to take out the pegs. Plyers work too. To help, you can push up from the soundhole.

Use a tool, like that pic or get peg winder that has a little pryer on the winder. ALWAYS use the right tools. And for cutting the strings, use a VERY sharp wire cutter or some winders come as a multitool with cutters.
