Streaky Clean is the first part of the first episode in season 3 of Dexter's Laboratory. It originally aired on November 18, 2001 as part of Dexter Goes Global.

In this episode, Dexter invents a satellite to clean the stains off of his clothes, but the satellite malfunctions after colliding with another satellite. Not only does the cleaning ray remove stains, but it also removes the fabric on Dexter's clothing.


Dexter creates a satellite to clean stains off of his clothes, but it goes horribly wrong when Mir space station hits the satellite that Dexter created and the satellite becomes damaged, causing the fabric beneath each stain to be eliminated as well.


Dexter grows tired of spilling stains on himself, so he decides to build a device to keep the stains off of him, however someone falls asleep and changes the device, accidentally making it remove his clothes.

Dexter tries to make it home in the nude, but encounters several troubles along the way. He hides in a mailbox, but falls out and his glasses break, obscuring his vision. He then decides to pose as a pig in mud to deceive three girls. Next, he makes it home and past his parents, but finds no clothes for him to wear, so he decides to pull a coat out of the trash, but on his way out his mom notices the stain on his coat.
