Alright, this is all I could come up with.

Elle aime la propreté

...but i think there could be a better word.

    Mmmm... Would not the original sentence rather be 'she likes things to be clean'?
    Except for that, a more literal translation would be "Elle aime que les choses soient propres", but depending on the context yours could be used to be more concise.

    It's best to be as literal as possible when there's no context.

    Elle aime la propreté = she likes cleanliness.

    P.S. "She likes things to be clean" would be fine in spoken (or even written) Australian English.
