How do you Erase a DEAD SSD drive?

How do you erase a SSD drive  before returning it to the store or RMA for refund if your drive is not  seen by the "Select a Drive"/Toolbox?

If you have a magnetic drive you can use a Big Magnet before returning it but it seems I can't find an answer for SSD's.

So how do I make sure if I return it that the data  can't be restored?

Suggestions?

 

PS. Please don't answer if the drive has to be seen by whatever suggestion you make. This is for SSD drives that are dead.

AND

I cloned and have backups but my worry is that I can't erase  confidential data, so this is not about saving data.
