  • essential but also the corresponding phrasal verbs that a lot of people

  • struggle with i'm also going to give you some phrases and vocab words related to

  • cleaning at the end firstly before we get started i would just like to thank

  • the sponsor of today's video it is i Torquay if you haven't heard of I

  • can learn English and over 130 other languages from anywhere in the world

  • anytime as long as you have a stable internet connection it's an incredibly

  • affordable way of learning a language much cheaper than an offline tutor or a

  • language Academy so many people message me and ask me how they can meet and talk

  • to native speakers because they want to practice I talk he is a really good

  • option because yes they have the qualified teachers but they also have

  • community teachers who will practice conversation with you

  • they've given me an offer to pass on to you you will receive 10 dollars worth of

  • I talkie credit in your student wallet 48 hours after making your first

  • purchase of any amount that could be a free lesson just click on the link below

  • in the description box to sign up right let's get on with the lesson

  • firstly we're going to look at some cleaning verbs and they're examples of

  • course because I know you love examples but afterwards we're going to look at

  • their corresponding phrasal verbs how you can transform them into cleaning

  • related phrasal verbs I'm going to show you a really cool trick that will help

  • you remember which preposition goes with which verb but let's begin with the

  • verbs number one is to wipe to wipe this is to

  • clean or dry something by rubbing across your hand or some paper for example make

  • sure you wipe the surfaces with a clean cloth number two we have to clean it's

  • important because it relates to the phrasal verb this means to make clean

  • not dirty free from marks and dirt for example I'm going to clean the bathroom

  • because it's in a terrible state number three sounds similar to to clean

  • it's to clear and the meaning is different it means to remove unwanted

  • items or objects from so with to clean you're simply removing marks and dirt to

  • clear you're removing actual objects or items for example I cook the food my

  • fiance clears the table he's clearing objects he is removing used and unwanted

  • items from the table if I clean my workspace I'll probably be wiping down

  • the surfaces or washing the table if I clear my workspace I'm probably

  • organizing it removing pens and old bills and things like that number four

  • is to sweep to sweep this is to clean an area by brushing away dirt or litter I

  • wouldn't say to brush the dirt or brush the patio I would say can you sweep the

  • patio an example please sweep the floor carefully last time you missed a spot a

  • spot is a small area number five is to wash this means to clean with water and

  • usually soap or a detergent for example when you wash the dishes don't use a

  • metal brush on my non-stick pans two things to note here

  • I say wash the dishes but I also talked about pans when we say wash the dishes

  • we're speaking about dishes you know plates and cutlery but also any other

  • kitchen utensils that have been used in the

  • process of preparing a meal non-stick pans are different to normal pans

  • because they have a special coating that makes sure that food doesn't cling and

  • burn the next one number six is to hang this means to suspend something from the

  • top leaving the bottom part to dangle free for example why does it always rain

  • just as I go to hang my washing on the line number seven is to Hoover or to

  • vacuum this means to clean with a vacuum cleaner now to vacuum is the universal

  • phrase but Hoover is very common in British English and this is because for

  • many years Hoover which is a brand of vacuum

  • cleaner basically dominated the market so we just said we were going to Hoover

  • something instead of to vacuum something now even if our vacuum cleaner is made

  • by a different brand we are still inclined to call it a Hoover an example

  • when my mother who visit the carpets she likes to leave visible vacuum

  • cleaner marks so that everybody can notice the effort that she's made true

  • story I love my mum I always used to wonder why she would Hoover so hard to

  • leave these marks now I get it when I Hoover I want people to notice that I've

  • hoovered number eight is to tidy this means to organize or to arrange neatly

  • or to put something in its place for example I'm terrible at tidying my own

  • bedroom but I'm very good at telling others to tidy theirs number nine is to

  • mop this means to clean something by soaking up water or liquid for example

  • if you see any spilt drinks be sure to mop the floor number ten is to polish

  • this is to make the surface of something smooth and shiny by rubbing it usually

  • with a cloth for example please could you polish the cutlery before setting

  • the table note to set the table is to place all of the things that you

  • need on a table before dinner cutlery napkins plates salt and pepper sauces

  • everything to set the table we can also say to lay at the table

  • number 11 is to scrub scrub this is to rub something hard usually with a brush

  • and water in order to clean it for example you'll have to really scrub

  • those baking trays unfortunately they're covered in burnt cake number 12 is to

  • scour to scour this means to clean the surface of something by rubbing it hard

  • usually with an abrasive or a detergent for example you should scour that pan

  • with a metal brush and lots of washing up liquid and the last one number 13 is

  • to dust this means to remove the dust or dirt from the surface of something by

  • wiping it or brushing it for example please could you dust the ornaments on

  • the mantelpiece a mantelpiece is a wooden stone or sometimes marble

  • structure above a fireplace it's like a shelf and we like to put photo frames

  • and ornaments there right so we've got these 13 cleaning verbs how do we

  • transform them into phrasal verbs and how do we know which verb goes with

  • which preposition oh I can make this so much easier for you every single one of

  • these verbs can be used with the preposition up and up simply adds

  • emphasis to wipe up to clean up to clear up up implies that you're making

  • something better so to clean up means to clean something in order to improve it

  • because up is adding emphasis it doesn't necessarily change the meaning of the

  • verb before it you can use these cleaning verbs with confidence with the

  • preposition up knowing that the meaning is not changed to clean is the same

  • as to clean up just the latter has a little bit more emphasis now another

  • preposition that you will hear a lot with cleaning verbs is out the first

  • seven verbs in the verb list can also be used without the following six cannot be

  • used without I mean you could try but they would sound a bit weird using out

  • with a cleaning verb implies that something like an unwanted object or

  • dust or dirt is being removed from the inside of something whether that be a

  • room or a hollow object to wipe out this could be the inside of a bag can you

  • wipe out your lunch box I'm removing all the dirt and old food from the inside of

  • a lunch box to clean out or to clear out these are commonly used with rooms to

  • clear out your garage for example to throw away unwanted items and to make it

  • cleaner to hang out is an exception in this case because if you hang out the

  • washing it doesn't mean that your washing is unwanted it just means that

  • the washing is going to be hung outside but because to hang out is used quite

  • frequently I thought it was important that it was included in this list to

  • Hoover out to vacuum out to wash out to sweep out this is all talking about

  • removing dust from somewhere or something to tidy to mop to polish to

  • scrub to scour and to dust are not usually used without but they are

  • commonly used with up English is a very diverse and complicated language so yes

  • you might hear someone say can you scrub out those pans I wouldn't recommend it

  • because it's not commonly used right let's move on to the next part of the

  • lesson I'm going to give you some vocabulary words and phrases some are

  • quite idiomatic that describe cleanliness words and phrases that you

  • can use to talk about things that are very clean a couple of words first

  • the first one is spotless spotless she cleaned the kitchen until

  • it was spotless next number two we have immaculate

  • immaculate this means absolutely perfect by the time he'd finished the flat was

  • immaculate number three is orderly orderly this means that something is

  • very organized or tidy everything has a specific place the library was very

  • orderly every book had a place a number for the last vocabulary word is
