Clean language

Thank you for using always clean.

X Thank you for using always clean.

This sign has some grammar problems.

The adverb “always” should be used before the verb.

The word modifying the verb “use” should also be an adverb. So “cleanly”, not “clean”.

What is being used? “Use” is a transitive verb (他動詞), so there must be an object. For example, “this restroom.”

“Thank you for always using this restroom cleanly” is a correct sentence grammatically, but I don’t think it’s very natural. In America, this sign would say:

O Thank you for keeping this restroom clean.
