I find desoldering braids (also called a solder wick) to work well for soaking up solder, you put the copper braid between the solder and the soldering iron and it soaks up the solder.

..but If it dripped over onto another part and that part wasn't hot enough to solder to, it shouldn't have been able to make a strong solder joint. I imagine a small knock against the unwanted solder blob with the flat blade of a screwdriver or even picking it off with a fingernail often would knock it loose.
