: I'm trying to find out if the phrase "clear the air" exists and if it does in what context do you use it?

Yes, it's a common phrase. One meaning is to bring issues or areas of disagreement out in the open and address them.

We were having some problems but the argument helped clear the air.

Clear the air as in clean air after a storm?
