Copydex should peel off easily.
For the PVA, I think Id remove excess with a small screwdriver acting as a scraper.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

PVA   Glue    can   be   removed    by   a    stiff    paint   brush   and   boiling   water,    get   a   egg   cup   and   fill   it   with    boiling    water   and   gently    keep   dabbing   the   glue,   it   may    take   time   but  eventually   the    glue   will    soften   and   can    be   removed   with    a    small    screwdriver   or   cocktail   stick,   it   worked    for   me
