How to use iPhone explorer to clean up files?

I notice alot of the time when you uninstall a program it leaves a lot of crap on the iphone. /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/, where else should I be looking? Anyone familiar with file system of the iphone can give me a few tips on where else to look?

THANKS

I'd leave it alone.
If you remove something you're not supposed to you will be stuck having to restore. Be careful using ssh.

^ Do this. Otherwise, keep a copy of your firmware handy when the time comes to restore your phone. Yes.........I speak from experience.
