agree  GoodWords: If it's in reference to handwork, handwriting, etc., the correct word is"neat", not "clean". That is why, dear Anonymous, we need more context.

¿Cómo usarías tu frase? Todo depende del contexto, pero si dices por ejemplo:

\"Me gusta este cuarto por estar limpio\" una de las posibles traducciones sería:

\"I like this room because it\'s clean\"

Siempre es recomendable dar algo de contexto, de lo contrario todos estamos adivinando.
