Selling MBP: How/what to wipe (no install disk)

I have to get rid of my MBP.
I can delete the mail folders and clean the cache in Safari and Firefox.
I will also delete my purchased applications and save license info.
Besides my personal files, what else should I delete
I don't have my install disks, so I cannot do an erase via Disk Utility. Or can I?

I would create a new account, then securely delete the old account. That should take out the bulk of any personal files/folders.Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Nevermind, was going to suggest something but saw that you don't have the install discs.
