Hi Dexter,

you are using option x in git clean command. In the manual, the option x
tells:

    -x
           Don’t use the standard ignore rules read from .gitignore (per
directory) and $GIT_DIR/info/exclude, but do still use the ignore rules
given with -e options. This allows removing all untracked
           files, including build products. This can be used (possibly in
conjunction with git reset) to create a pristine working directory to test
a clean build.

So, if you don't want to delete files in .gitignore, just don't use the
option x, only the options f and d: git clean -fd
