Is there any specific command for clear cache in bash terminal?

This is the situation. I opened one bash terminal. In that terminal i typed one command. After that i typed another command. If I click up arrow or down arrow, it shows those command. I dont want those commands display again. Is there any specific command for erase those commands in terminal. clear command just clear the terminal. But If i click up arrow those commands shown in terminal.
