Or you could remove them as stated and dip. However, I've had great success on anubias by dipping 5min in straight 3% H2O2 (no diluting) then plop them right back in the tank...no issues (roots & all).
+1 agree^^...I never rinse...I just did 3ml to every gallon and killed my bba in my 55g...I turned filters off, spot treated 3ml to each gallon, let sit 20 minutes, turned filters back on, now bba has turned reddish and almost gone...I did get to the root of my cause...I added more co2 and hydor water pump to circulate water better...good luck
