There’s fingerprint smudges; easily cleaned with a proper cleaner and cloth. Then there’s that ever growing list of cache files, duplicate files, unwanted apps, and language files which take up space. How do you clean those?
Eye Candy Cleaning
Mac users can find and use any one, two, or three or more apps that combined can work wonders to de-clutter your Mac of unwanted files.
Or, you can take the appliance route and use the Washing Machine approach. No, you don’t stick you Mac into a washing machine and hope for the best.
Washing Machine is Intego’s new eye candy app for the Mac user who wants to keep the Mac’s files and apps in good order, but doesn’t want to muck through endless menus or multiple apps to make it happen.
As Mac apps go, Washing Machine is probably much easier to use than a real washing machine but uses similar buttons and language.
Cleaning Caches, Downloads, Languages, Logs, and Trash is little more than flipping a switch on Washing Machine’s washing machine-like interface.
The claim to fame with Washing Machine is ease of use. The buttons to accomplish deep cleaning are simple and straightforward.
Cache files, language files, and files (including apps) you no longer use can be dispensed with safely and quickly.
There is no learning curve. Washing Machine is that simple.
Washing Machine finds and makes ready files which are duplicated unnecessarily elsewhere on your Mac. Not backups. Duplicates.
If you’re like many Mac users then your Mac’s Desktop is cluttered with files and folders. Washing Machine can even clean and tidy those files with the Smart Desktop function.
Washing Machine comes with a few other average consumer grade features. Smart Dock makes it easier to move apps around, to and from, the Dock. Smart Folders help you find files you use the most.
Granted, much of what Washing Machine can do can be accomplished by a number of free Mac apps. That’s the problem. No single app does the deeds, and most are far more complicated than Washing Machine.
