Put in an "H", and you'll find that not many actually chase it.

Put in a "C", this free and you're clean.

Put in a "P", looks like you got it dirty.

Put in an "L", it's small, but some things go in just fine.

The answer should be in the form

_pple

followed by an explanation.

I think the answer is:

S_OT

H

SHOT: Not many people use chasers when drinking shots?

C

SCOT: "Scot free" means you're safe (clean)

P

SPOT: Got a stain

L

SLOT: Like a coin slot

Attempt2

Another possibility is:

_ast

H

Hast: archaic second person singular present of have. Not used must or chased.

C

Cast: You cast type1 to type2. Once casting (forceful moulding or reshaping) is free, object is clean.

P

Past: Not many people are satisfied with their past

L

Last: Last but not the least. Happy ending.


I think the answer is:

_atch

H

Hatch: Not sure

C

Catch: Once free after being caught, and your are free

P

Patch: patching with cloth to fix something actually looks ugly

L

Latch: Even small latches are good to hold big doors
