Silk plant question, sort of hardware

Received some mid range priced silk plants with a used aquarium I recently purchased and it looks like they may have been left sitting in the undrained aquarium for awhile as they have a definite green tinge to them. Usually I would just rinse and reuse but I am wondering if I need to do anything extra to these ones

Maybe soak in some hot water to try to get some of the green off

Maybe some vinegar and baking soda volcano fun, then us a soft brush to scrub.

Bleach might damage the color.

Oh - a container of hydrogen peroxide. I got a nasty green black SW rock sparkly "white" again!
