Looking for the command than can clear routes in the routing table – In Case there is s stale route.

I have looked around and could not find something that specifically targets the routing table

EOS doesn't have the "clear ip route" command as you should never have a stale route. EOS does give the ability to reset routing protocols through the clear command (clear bgp, clear ip ospf, clear isis, etc). For static routes EOS offers the ability to clear arp to instantiate the ARP learning again.

If you experience a stale route situation, namely a route learned via routing protocol but not programmed correctly in the forwarding table this is a bug and should be fixed.

If there's a use case for this command i'm missing, do reach out and happy to better understand the use case.
