Hello, I refinished my oak floors with semigloss oil based poly 12 days ago. I carefully explained all the rules and restrictions to my family to follow during the curing stage. In spite of that, my husband repaired a bookcase with wood glue and placed it in the room before the glue was dry. I just discovered 2 solid, dried glue drips on the floor. How do I remove these without damaging or lifting the brand new poly? Thank you for any advice you can offer. (I have tried posting photos but haven't been successful.)

Try paint thinner, it won't bother the finish. Tape a cotton ball then wet it for a while, covered with tin foil. First thing to try.

Pete A, to make sure I'm following, soak a cotton ball with paint thinner and let it sit on the glue spots with foil over it?

Hopefully this would soften the glue so it can be scraped off with a credit card. You may need to use alcohol if this doesn't help. Check a non-conspicuous spot to see if the alcohol will bother the floor finish before using it.
