Yes you can. All you need to is backup any files you may need, then run the following:

rm -rf ~/*

If you still have files in your home folder, you can run Nautilus as root:

gksu nautilus

then navigate to your home folder, unhide all hidden files (ctrl+H) and select and delete them.

After this, log out and log back in, or restart your computer.
