And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.
When we speak of cleansing we normally consider filthy things being made cleaned.
In Peter’s vision he saw “unclean” animals, but Jesus told him that they have been cleansed.
In all reality, it wasn’t the animals, that was a parable, Jesus was about to bring Peter into the plan of salvation for the gentiles.
We can look at our own selves, even Jews, that there is an element of being unclean in God’s eyes.
Our salvation (for the Jew also) is the cleansing. Being that Peter must have thought he was ok, there remained the natural separation that came from generations of instruction.
“…And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God…”
1 Corinthians 6:11

Amen, we accepted and are cleansed.
Amount of sin that is bigger than the blood of Jesus Christ.
Amen brother. God bless you
