Clearing std::stringstream

I am using std::stringstream to format a string. How can I clear the
stringstream variable I am using to "re use" the same variable?

Eg:

Using std::string

std::string buffer;

buffer = "value1" + " : " + "value2";
buffer = "value3" + " : " + "value4";

Gives values of
value1 : value2
value3 : value4

The = operator for std::string overwrites the preivous contents of the
string, but I have been unable to locate a similar thing for
std:stringstream

using std::stringstream

std::stringstream buffer;

buffer << "value1" << " : " << "value2";
buffer << "value3" << " : " << "value4";

Gives values of
value1 : value2
value1 : value2value3 : value4

Which is not the desired result. How should I go about clearing the
buffer of a std::stringstream?

Thanks in advance

use the .str( string ) method ... it should be an FAQ.

I'm not sure, but you can try

buffer.flush();
