Recursively Remove .DS_Store Files In OS X (More Optimized)

Recently, I saw a this snippet :

alias rmdsstores='find ./ -type f | grep .DS_Store | xargs rm'

But this one is not very optimized, because you have two pipes with command call.

You can do exactly the same, with only the 'find' command, here the code :

alias rmdsstores='find . -name *.DS_Store -type f -exec rm {} \;'
