At the beginning of a session, load the package
Utilities`CleanSlate`. Then later when you want to reset things
to the state that existed when the CleanSlate package was loaded
simply do

CleanSlate[]

I have this package loaded at the start of every session by including

<<Utilities`CleanSlate`

in my init.m file.

Also, you can load this package later in your session if you
like. Then computations done before the CleanSlate package was
loaded are preserved. Only things done after the CleanSlate
package is loaded are reset.
