“You’d better start cleaning your room now. I want it spick and span by the time Grandma gets here!”

“Spick and span” means very clean. Originally it may have meant “brand new” but now anything can be spick and span, so long as there is not a speck of visible dirt on it.


「Spick and span」は「とてもきれいな」という意味です。元々は「新しい」という意味らしいですが、全く汚れていないのなら古いものでも「spick and span」になれます。
