The difference between ‘clean out’ and ‘clean up’

The is a difference between the usage of ‘clean out’ and ‘clean up’. The former refers to cleaning and tidying a room, cupboard, drawer and so on thoroughly while the latter means cleaning and tidying a mess.

The following sentences should make it clear to readers:

1 Before the arrival of New Year we usually clean out our house and rooms.

2 The pupils were directed by their form teacher to clean up the mess after the class party.
