You need to realize dr DanW stated he set up his init.m file
differently than I do. Specifically, he used:

DeclarePackage["Utilities`CleanSlate`",{"CleanSlate"}];

This doesn't load the package until you use one of the functions
in the package. So, for his usage doing CleanSlate[] at the top
of the notebook loads the package and a subsequent execution of
CleanSlate restores the state as it was when he first does CleanSlate[].

So, despite the apparent conflict, I do not believe dr DanW is
saying something different than what I said about what
CleanSlate does.
