This isn't enough to clean all private data on the laptop. You need to
at least clean the activity data directories (~/.sugar/<bundle_id>).
Best to remove all of ~/.sugar and ~/Activities. If the terminal
activity has been used, the user might also have created files somewhere
else in the home directory.

Depending on how OFW handles blocks that already contain the desired
content (skip or overwrite) it might actually be the best (including
easiest) solution to your problem. It gets the laptop back to exactly
the expected condition, no potential for accidental or malicious
