I use Clean My Mac to periodically clean out old log files and caches. Right before the clean, it asks me permission and I have to enter my password to authenticate. Is there any way I can authorize the app once and skip this step every time?

No, it's asking for authentication not because the app needs it but because it's altering system files and OS X will always need authentication for this.
