Clearing dalvik cache isn't going to give you any problems and it won't erase any data you need. The easiest way to do this is to get a file explorer (like es file explorer) and go to /data/dalvik-cache, select all files and delete. Reboot your device immediately though because your phone will be unstable. When your booting you'll get a 'android is upgrading' notification then after that you'll be good to go. This is probably the best way to remove leftover app data that you don't want without digging through hundreds of folders.
P.S. launching apps might be a little slower after this but only for a little bit😊.
