This study discusses the procedure to delete all Git stashes at once.
How Can I Remove All of My Git Stashes at Once?
To delete the list of the Git stashes at once, first, navigate to the particular repository. Create a file in the directory. Next, track the text file to the staging area and commit the changes to the repository. Then, update the file and save these changes. After that, temporarily add these changes to the stash and view the list. Finally, execute the “git stash clear” command to remove the whole stash list.

That’s all! We have described the procedure to delete all of my Git stashes at once.
To delete all the Git stashes at once, first, move to the desired local repository and create a new text file in the working directory. Then, add the text file to the staging area and commit changes to the repository. Next, open the file with the default text editor, update it, and save these changes. After that, temporarily add these changes to the stash and check the list. Lastly, run the “$ git stash clear” command to remove the whole list of stashes. This study demonstrated the method of deleting all Git stashes at once.
