1> What is the difference between 'clean up' and 'clean'? ①Everybody helped to clean up after the party ②Everybody helped to clean after the party

2>I think that "I can't stand losing you" means 'I don't like to lose you.. Is it right??
If 'can't stand' means 'not like', we use ing form of a verb (not 'to..') after 'can't stand'
so..I wanna know the meaning of 'I can't stand to be lonely'..I wonder if "I can't stand being lonely" is also right expression and is the same meaning as "I cant't stand to be lonely". I think that it might mean ' I don't like to be lonely'. What do you think??

<3> What does "Let me carry your bag for you" mean? Does 'carry' mean holding your bag or moving your bag to somewhere?

<4> The customs officer made Sally open her case.. here what does 'case' mean? Does it mean "suitcase' or "box"? If it means 'suitcase', you usually call 'suitcase' just 'case'??

When is used phrase "cannot stand" it means that person hates something and gets angry or annoyed. "I cannot stand smoking in public transport". So due to this I get very angry and can say something outrage to person who do that. "I cannot stand being lonely" - I hate being lonely and tend to avoid it.

What does "Let me carry your bag for you" mean? Someone asks for permission to helping you for take care of you.

"Case" means suitcase or package or container. You can call "case" whatever you want.
Thanks for your answer.

I still wonder if " I can't stand to be lonely " is grammatically correct..

You used ing form of the verb after can't stand...I studied like that..But searching internet, I found " I can't stand to be lonely..so I still wonder if it's grammatically correct..

Anyway thanks again..

It is certainly a much used colloquial form, and in my view can be regarded as a grammatical form.
"regarded as a grammatical form" means grammatically correct?

Anyway thanks for your opinion..

Yes, Mr.Feebs11 meant it can be considered as a correct form. Emotion: smile

Anyway, the one thing that doesn't seem to be addressed is "clean up."

Clean up means to tidy up, straighten the place up. You throw out the trash, collect the dishes left on the table, wash the dishes, rearrange the furniture back to its original position, etc. You can "clean up" a place without getting out cleaning supplies.
