I ripped up wallpaper and used joint compound to texture the walls...unfortunately it got on my laninate floors... they are the wood like ones with the grains in them..the compound is in between the little grooves... what should I do?How do I remove this?

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

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