Remove Carpenter's Glue from Hardwood Floors

Help! I installed new tongue and groove beech hardwood flooring myself. I sanded with a rental pad sander, then made a mixture of LePage Yellow Carpenters Glue and fine sawdust from my sanding to make a putty to fill in a few nail holes in the end row, and a few small gaps between pieces here and there. I applied the glue/sawdust mixture with a putty knife, being sure to scape off all excess. I let the glue dry, then sanded until no more glue was visible. I then used Varathane Diamond Kote water based satin. Every spot of glue showed! I have since resanded the entire floor removing all traces of varathane, however, sanding the glue only seems to heat it up and drive it further into the wood!!! How can I remove this glue/sawdust mess from floors without damaging the wood??? I'd really rather not use a chemical method if there are other options.... please... any advice would be appreciated....
