Hi, Amy. What is the difference between “clean” and “clean out”? If I say “I clean the room” and “I clean out the room” – what is the difference between them?

Also, when is each one is used?

Hi! Great question. When you “clean out” a room, you remove clutter from it. When you “clean” a room, you may remove clutter, or you may do things like vacuum, dust, etc. Cleaning out implies taking things away.
