We've got two ways to do it: the CleanMyMac 2 way and the manual way.
Instead of searching all over your Mac to find and remove user cache files yourself, you can clear user caches on a Mac using CleanMyMac 2. It makes removing cache files as easy as can be. To get rid of them with CleanMyMac 2:
Done! If you’d like to remove only cache files and nothing else, click on Detailed Results before clicking Clean. Deselect everything but System Cache Files and User Cache Files, then click Clean. Cleaning your Mac has never been easier. Download CleanMyMac 2 to get yourself a faster, cleaner Mac — without worrying about cleaning the wrong thing.
Repeat the same steps but substitute ~/Library/Caches with /Library/Caches (note the lack of the “~” symbol, which, in technical-jargon, acts as a shortcut path to your home folder). Also note: We recommend that you remove the insides of these folders, but not the folders themselves.
Make sure that once you have finished clearing out these caches for additional hard drive space, you empty out your Trash. To do this, control-click on the Trash icon in the dock and select “Empty Trash.” Restart your Mac afterward so your Mac can begin to create new, fresh cache files.
