With PVA I just use a wet paper towel ( or two) to clean it up as soon after assembly as I can. Try not to get the glue joint too wet as this can weaken the bond.

Urethane glue squeeze out just bubbles up into a “foam” and can easily be sliced or scraped away, usually without damage to the surface below. It takes a very thin coat of urethane glue for each application and dampening one side of the joint with water to accelerate the cure process. The thin coat also reduces the chance of squeeze out.
