{{Cleanup}} can be used on its own, or with the following two optional parameters:

  • reason: the reason for requesting cleanup. This is useful for editors in case the reason for requesting a cleanup is not immediately obvious. The first character of the reason (immediately after the equals sign) should be lowercase, in order to preserve the sentence flow when rendered.
  • date: the month and year (e.g. October 2021) when the Cleanup template was added to the article; this helps to figure out how long an article has been flagged for cleanup.

For example, {{Cleanup|reason=the article is full of incorrect capitalisation|date=January 2011}} would display as:

This Article may require cleanup to meet the wiki's quality standards. The specific problem is: the article is full of incorrect capitalisation. Please improve this article if you can. The talk page may contain suggestions. (January 2011)

The template should be placed at the top of the article requiring a cleanup. Because {{Cleanup}} is a broad term specific problems should be identified in the reason field; a more detailed explanation of what needs to be done can be provided on the article's talk page. An article's {{Cleanup}} template may be removed without the problem(s) being fixed if it is not possible to identify what needs to be cleaned-up.
