OS X Launchpad Clean Up

I quite like OS X Launchpad. The only problem is it gets quite messy after a while. The way I fix it is by spraying napalm over its cache and restarting the dock:

Clean up Launchpad
$ rm ~/Library/Application\ Support/Dock/*.db && killall -KILL Dock

I use this command so often that I have an alias for it:

Clean up Launchpad shell alias
$ alias culp='rm ~/Library/Application\ Support/Dock/*.db && killall -KILL Dock'

The alias command should work both in bash and zsh. My mnemonic for culp is Clean Up Launch Pad.
