Hello can you please clarify these sentences, which one is correct:

-Let me get cleaned up first and then I'll head your way.
-Let me clean up first and then I'll head your way.

It's referring to when you're dirty after you have finished work Or you just happen to be "dirty" before a special event so you need to shower and look clean for it. Im not talking about looking sharp for the event, just getting clean.

    To me, "Let me get cleaned up" refers exclusively to cleaning yourself (taking a shower, etc.)

    "Let me clean up" can refer either to yourself or your house (let me get the house tidied up).
