How to clean solids off bed?

I got one good 24-hour print and now I have small solid deposits and can't get a first layer to stick. Could be a lot of things, I'm playing with retraction settings and wondering if my filament is already moist even though it's only been out of the bag for 3 days and I live in an arid climate. Do you guys store filament if it's not being used for a simple overnight period? Another thing I've been struggling with is the fact that every time I start a print my M3+ says my code has been prepared for a different printer, but the only presets I could find all included the MMU2S but I assumed that part wouldn't change anything?

Best Answer by cwbullet:

I use plastic razor blades to remove filament that is stuck on the bed.  They work well without scratching the bed.  

I store my filament in a small dry box used for cameras when I am not printing.  It cost about $200 but it will hold about 15-20 rolls.
