Essentially wipe clean would mean that you cleaned something in such a way that is now in a immaculate/spotless. There´s no way one can spot some dirt, speck of dust or something.

The expression suggests that one could find dirt, clutter, etc, (at least some, but sometimes plenty of it) previously.


Related expressions:
brush/scrub/sweep/wash/wipe etc something clean.
