Glad you mentioned this. Besides easy cleanup, it can save your butt sometimes as well. Once I glued the dovetailed sides of a drawer to the front only later realizing I’d forgotten to cut the grooves for the drawer bottom. With PVA, I’d have had to scrap it and start over, but having used hide glue, I was able to separate the parts in about 10 minutes with a moist cloth and heat gun. Cleaning the joints for re-gluing was easy too.
