How to delete orphaned power automate flows ?



We leveraged power automate web API ( to create an approval flow which is called our master template flow. We programmatically create dynamic flows based on this master template client/flow definition whenever a site gets created in SharePoint Online. This way, we now have about 1400 flows in the 'Solutions' container. 


When we click on the ‘Automate’ option in SharePoint site's ellipsis menu, it takes several minutes for the workflows to appear, causing a major concern to the users. Deleted hundred's of sites as part of the clean up but the corresponding Power Automate flows still exist in the 'Solutions' container. Is there a way to clean up these orphaned flows ( want to delete flows if it's SharePoint site doesn't exist). Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
