You can use clear command and specifiy the variable name right in your code.
newVar = 42
newVar = 42
newVar = newVar + 3
newVar = 45
clear newVar
Unrecognized function or variable 'newVar'.

Try "clearvars" or "clear all" as a line in your script. Do not do this in a function that takes input arguments or else you will blow them away!!!
