My family seems to have inherited a word from our parents and grandparents that we cannot define. Might be spelled Losch (with e umlaut). Best I can find is that that root meaning is something that needs cleaning or clearing. I found many compounds that seemed to be about cleaning things. Any ideas about what the word might be and its accurate definition?

I believe that the word you want is lösen. That means "to solve." As in to solve a problem.
It can also refer to "cleaning," as a cleaner is otherwise known as a "solvent."
