Default dip for algae on my plants?

i have bba on my plants i am planning to overhaul the whole tank soon and i was hoping to salvage most of my plants because i really like them. is there anything i can do to get it off?

i am planning to pull out the plants and then rub off whatever i can - it comes off pretty easily. can i put anything on the plants and then rinse before i put them back in?

(i have a 66 gallon tank, two 54 watt bulbs on for 3, off for 6, and then on for 3 again, an eheim 2215, and a koralia 750 on the tank. i dose 5 mL of excel every day and flourish once a week with ferts under the play sand substrate. i recently had a bad green water problem but got that completely cleared up. but i still have the bba)
