Best "bath" solution for algae on plants?

I know, Im new, "use the search function". But I have and cant seem to find the best answer to my problem.

Im about to do a major re-scape and inital scape of a new tank. I want to use most of the plants in my existing set up in the new one. However lately I've had a bad break out of hair algae on my plants. i really dont want to transfer this stiff full force to a new tank and continue the problem.

So my question is, whats the best bath solution to use to kill the algae, and not the plants? Snails are not an issue.

I live in a pretty small town and finding Alum might be impossible, and Potasium Premagnate hard. And Im planning on working on my setup tomorrow evening(been waiting on a delivery).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
