I acquired a batch of cleaned wheat back cent coins. Any good ideas on how to restore to pre-cleaned state?

Either circulation or use as a pocket piece, which is essentially controlled circulation.

There is no way to "revert" them, but you can mask it with the ways listed above.

Once it's been cleaned, the price goes down drastically. There's also no way to reverse it.

The only reliable way to remove evidence of cleaning is to wear it off the coin in circulation.

There's no way to reverse cleaning but you can put in in "controlled circulation" and use a couple as pocket pieces.
