git fetch origin 
git reset –hard origin/master

I’ve known this one for a while, but worthwhile to write it down as a way to reset branch state. This can be especially important if you’ve had to do a few rebases in the past and the current history doesn’t match commit IDs with the new (origin) history. 

git clean -f -d –dry-run

Remove unstaged files with -f, also directories with -d. Preview the process before you do it with –dry-run.
