Cleaning algae on leaves

So am wondering what people do for cleaning leaves of their rooted plants. Narrow leafed ones like crypts specifically. My nerite has been keeping everything else algae free in Remy's tank, but the narrow leaves of my crypts he doesn't go on, and they are getting pretty bad. I don't like the thought of uprooting them to wash them, so am wondering if there is another good way? Do I just leave it be til the leaf dies and trim those off?

I just lightly rub the leaves so the algae gets wiped off.

ohhhh ok, lol. I just went ahead and stuck my hand in there to do it in the tank, and it came off much easier than I was thinking it'd be. I thought it had to be scrubbed more! Me and my crypts thank you :)
Looks like a little stays stuck, but it's not completely covered anymore, that's the main thing.
