Clear subscripted variables

Here is the code (x\_i stands for x subscript i):

Table[{Print[x\_i = i]; Clear[x]; Remove[x]; Unset[x]; Print[x\_i]},
{i, 1, 2}]

I expected that x\_i is cleared at the end of the loop but it isn't

If I insert Clear[Subscript] in the loop then it is cleared, but not
desirable since it clears all variables with subscripts.

What command shall I use to clear specific subscripted variables?
