what's to use for the word clean? - pinyin Hi, I see many words (as verb and adjective) that all mean clean, but are very different. I wonder what are the differences? And what would be more common to use? I saw used shoushi, qingli as verbs, and dasau and ganjing as the adjective - am I correct about the distinction here? for instance: his room is clean he is cleaning his room I'm cleaning my house Thanks much

his room is clean 干净的 - ganjingde, it means the room is free from dirt. he is cleaning his room 打扫 - dasao, If you clean something or clean dirt off it, you make it free from dirt I'm cleaning my house 打扫 - dasao, If you clean something or clean dirt off it, you make it free from dirt people around me tend to use "打扫 - dasao" when you clean your room or somewhere, "收拾" is also okay.
