Which attributive: きれい or 清潔 sounds more natural to say "clean hands"?

  • Do you mean literally clean, or like "free from guilt/responsibility"? – istrasci May 10 '17 at 22:33

清潔 means "being sanitary/hygienic" so I think きれいな手 sounds more like "clean hands." But, of course, it can mean "pretty hands" by context.
