Not sure if this is good, but it worked for me ;-)
1 shut down slapd.
2 go to directory that's specified in slapd.conf
3 delete the database files (if it's in it's own directory, it makes it
easier to find which ones to delete)
4 restart slapd
5 live happily ever after.

P.S. for single entries when you want to keep the rest, try the ldapdelete
