Just because you scored a free USB thumb drive from that fledgling web start-up at that trade show last month doesn't mean you need to be their walking billboard. Removing that unsightly screen printed logo doesn't have to be a huge expensive production, either. Just grab a sugar cube from the grocery store (or just steal a few next time you're out for brunch).

DIY blog Tested.com made a discovery that all you need to remove those distracting logos from freebies like USB drives is a single sugar cube.

First, test a small, inconspicuous spot on your gear by rubbing it gently with the sugar cube. If you're not leaving scratches, then you can get to grinding on your logo.

This method won't work on everything—Tested mentions this technique works better on metal-like surfaces and glass than it does on plastic. But it's a cheap and easy fix that's worth a shot if you've been wondering how to erase that company logo. Because let's be honest: We're all about clean aesthetics here.
