If there have not any full width page template available then you need to make or edit your current page template. Can you please inbox me your current page temple thus I can edit the code and get back to you?

Use a page template without sidebar (usually called full width page). If your theme doesn't come with one, I wrote a blog post with video on how to do this a few months back. You can read it here:

Hope this helps.

If you never want a sidebar on a page, change line 19 of your page.php to
<?php //get_sidebar(); ?>

Or just delete that line.

If you want the option of having a page with a sidbar in the future, create a child theme with a "full page" template.

First, make a directory wp-content/themes/cleanr-child

Then create a style.css line in the cleanr-child directory with these lines.
Theme Name: Cleanr Child
Template: Cleanr
@import url("../cleanr/style.css");

And copy the page.php file from the wp-content/themes/cleanr directory and name it wp-content/themes/cleanr-child/page-full.php. Then make the change in page-full.php and also add these lines to the top of page-full.php

Template Name: Full width page (no sidebar)

Once you have the child theme set up this way, you can activate it on the Appearance->Themes panel.

The advantage to doing this in a child theme is that if the parent theme (cleanr) is updated, your modifications in the child theme will not be wiped out by the upgrade.
