Hi there
I am not sure if the compound is in the beveled seams or in the indentations of the grain.

Anyhow, here are some suggestions.

Big globs can be removed by scraping using a wooden shim or a plastic putty knife.If they don't pop off, dampen them with a wet rag and scrape off a little at a time. Go over with the damp rag often if needed.
Don't use a metal putty knife, these will scratch the surface.

Drywall is water solvable so small areas can be removed using a damp rag. Rinse the rag often to avoid smears.

Be careful when removing compound in the beveled seams. Remove the excess and finish up by rubbing lightly with a damp rag.
Hope this helps
Thanks
David

It was really nice for sharing such a nice information about some points for the joint compound off laminate floors.
