    Post so squeaky clean

    From She may be dressed as an angel but Victoria Beckham forgets to clean her ears | Mail Online

    In the text below, what does 'squeaky' mean?

    Victoria Beckham did her best to look heavenly as she arrived at Manchester's Harvey Nichols in Manchester today to launch her new perfume.
    The former Spice Girls was dressed in all white and from the front, appeared to be wearing a pair of angel wings.
    As Posh turned on her heels, she revealed the back of her dress was curiously covered in fur.
    But the angelic-looking star is not always so squeaky clean.

    "Squeaky clean." is an expression, it means to be extremely, ultra, hyper clean.

    Squeaky clean is also used as a metaphor to mean pure at heart, or morally unblemished.
