How can I revive my dying houseplant?

Dh thought it was a good idea to put one of our houseplants outside in the sun, said it looked like it could use
Its a Golden pothos.
It got left out more than it should have been out, maybe 3 or 4 days/nights, and temps are not warm here.
Now the leaves are droopy and some have become black.
Any suggestions on how to revive this plant....

  • If the leaves are black they will not come back so you can cut it back to that part and it should start growing again. Just bring it inside and let it get some sun through a window. They are a tropical ground growing plant and they don't do very well with lots of direct sunlight. Good luck to you!!!

  • It might not come back, but thankfully these are super cheap and can easily be replaced. Are there any leaves that are still alive? If so cut them off as much as possible and put it in a vase of water, it will grow roots on it's own and live. Once the roots are well established, you can then plant it in soil again.
