Anubias barteri var. nana algae removal

So I have some anubias that have grown fairly large on some driftwood. I want to sell them but they have the hard green algae on some of the leaves. They have been sitting in a critter-less tank for months and basically untended other than water changes/top offs. I need to get this algae off of the leaves so I can take some photos for potential buyers. Should I go emersed in a damp tank, or take the plants out and treat with something, or what? I don't want leaf drop. I really do not want to trim the leaves off, it lowers the value. We are looking at 50-100 plus leaves per rhizome. Anyone have any proven methods? Thanks...
