How to Securely Erase an SSD Drive

Is it possible to erase SSD drives?

How can an SSD drive be effectively erased, short of physically destroying them? Obviously this can be a way if you have lots of dollars or SSD drives. If you have searched online, you must have read many articles about erasing SSDs, and they say it differently. Some says it's impossible to wipe SSD disks, while some says you can do it but not easy. The point here is that you can fully erase an SSD if you select a professional and effective SSD wiper, easy and secure.
