Thanks but I fail to see how bleachbit will help me cleanup/restore a
/root profile to default.

If you add another user it's always easy to clean up as when you delete
the user you can elect to delet the user files too... or just do it
later via /home/<olduser> etc. However a root (user) account is quite
different & resides /root rather than /home. So I need to be careful
cleaning up anything there.
