If it's possible, just update your sudoers file on those servers.

username ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWDL:ALL

of course.. thats full root access to the user so you can tailor that down... but with the nopasswd: option you will not need a password.

then you can just add: sudo -u root (or whatever user you want) in front of your find/cleanup commands with no need to store the password in clear text anywhere.
