I was given a purple with glitter poinsettia for my Birthday. I know that it will die soon with all that on it. Is there any way I can remove the glitter and dye without hurting my plant or do anything that will save it? Thank you very much. Cheers, Lori

No, you cannot remove the glitter. It is actually sprayed on with a glitter spray aerosol paint.
Water will damage the leaves. You should use care when watering your poinsettia, water the soil and avoid getting water on the leaves.
Your plant will likely last, glitter and all several weeks past the holiday with proper care and light.
