Such an app should be used with caution on folders that don't reside in document folders. Filename that begin with a period are invisible (normally) and there are many many of them in the System and Library folders (and subfolders). These files are there for a reason and should not be "cleaned" willy-nilly. Document folders (Documents, Pictures, Desktop, etc) probably don't have dangers associated with deleting invisible files but users ought to be careful anyway.

"FolderWasher accesses a given folder and deletes all files whose name begin with period like ".DS_Store" files created by Mac OS X (those annoying files visible with Windows)." Just be sure to note that .DS_Store files store info about the way you've configured certain aspects of OS X and that deleting them to avoid their annoying presence in Windows will, quite possibly, cause you significantly more annoyance when you boot back into OS X.

works as advertised. Would be nice to have a preference to skip the dialog and just have it open, clean the folder and quit automatically. Thanks
