Clearing an unbound list box

Experts,
The purpose of my form is to build a bill of material (BOM). The user selects a bill of material number and adds various components to it, saving a record after each new componet has been added, showing the build components in a list box. When a BOM has been completed the user then adds a new BOM and the list box needs to be cleared. And that is my problem - clearing out the list box.  
I've tried:
Me.lstBOM.Value=False
