is de peur que is similar de crainte que?

According to my understanding, they are similar, so we can use them as same in a sentence? ex : je me relave le verre de peur qu'il ne soit pas propre. ou de crainte qu'il ne soit pas propre. are they correct?

This relates to:
De peur que + Le Subjonctif = For fear that -

Bonjour Ly Fen ! Yes indeed, "de peur que" means exactly the same as "de crainte que". Both are actually accepted as correct alternate answers in our quizzes, as they are synonyms. Thanks for your question! A bientôt !
