I haven't tried it in wine yet, but I have to say that CCleaner is the only program of its sort that I trust in Windows. (You're right, most are useless or dangerous.) CCleaner shows the user a list of things it thinks should be deleted, along with the reason why it thinks they should be deleted. The user has the option to accept or reject any of the recommendations, so it should be safe for users who are paying attention to what they are doing. It's rated platinum in the AppDB.
