The Chinese word 打扫 means “to clean”. It is commonly used to refer to the act of cleaning a room or a space. For example, one might say “今天我要打扫房间” which translates to “Today, I need to clean the room”. The word is made up of two characters: 打 which means “to hit” or “to strike” and 扫 which means “to sweep”. Together, they create the meaning of “to clean” by striking or sweeping away dirt and dust.
