I was experimenting with hot glue, and decided to use my soldering iron as a heat source (please don’t be mad I’m sorry) and there is on thinnesh layer of hot glue on the iron. I tried scraping it off with a knife which worked in some places but not others. No direct access to sandpaper.

Does your soldering iron have a removable tip?
If you can't get ALL of the glue off, toss it and replace the tip.

I would put it in a freezer for a while then take it out and see if it will peel off afterwards.
you could use a un-coated brass pot scratch-er or brass wool for soldering stations and scrape it off with a hot iron, then re-tin with solder and repeat.
