A clean slate : litéralement une ardoise propre

If you are given a clean slate, it means that you can start again from scratch and that your past mistakes are forgiven and your problems are forgotten.

Ex: He paid off all his debts to the bank, he can now start over with a clean slate.

Synonym : a fresh start
