    Hi Harry,
    Cleaning up means to make things tidy and clean.
    Cleaning out usually involves removing things.It could mean to empty it completely.

    Clean out this closet -- remove all the things we don't use.
    If I clean out my savings account, I remove all my money.
    Let me clean out this drawer for you -- I will remove everything so that you can use it for your things.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
