getting rid of dis-colored old man cacti hair

I was checking out lowes and they had some nice old man cacti, however they have fake red flowers glued on them and the hair around the flowers is red, I assume getting rid of the fake flowers would be straight forward enough but what about the dis-colored hair? any one else run into this and find a solution? i got a small less abused one, but a bigger one would be nice

It won't be a problem. I found that a couple of weeks in the sun and a few showers will take the problem away. I don't mind the flowers so much but I wish they wouldn't use half a stick of hot glue to each flower. just a little dab would do the trick and then flower removal wouldn't be major surgery.

Thanks for the info. good to know its not permanently stained. luckily the flowers are glued mostly to the hair and not the main plant.
