What do you need it for? You can just wipe cache and dalvik. Some kernels place files in /system/etc so you could look at that and delete those files if necessary

Kernel cleaning scripts are nonsense, no need for them.

Seeing as most kernel recovery flashable zips contain a cleaner script, there must be some point to them.

Due to that you generally shouldn't need a standalone cleaner, but here's a good one from the GLaDOS thread anyway:

I do NOT answer technical questions via PM. Post your question in the correct thread if you want a response.

If you look at the cleaner script included with kernels they format cache and dalvik. You can do this in recovery before flashing zip.

The ONLY thing I do if I'm coming from a kernel that has replaced my ramdisk is to relfash my original kernel, or ROM, before flashing a kernel that doesn't replace the ramdisk. Otherwise, no "cleaning" is done.
