How to uninstall Homebrew cleanly?

I tried

ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL"

But I got errors

It appears Homebrew is already installed. If your intent is to reinstall you should do the following before running this installer again:
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL"
The current contents of /usr/local are bin Cellar etc Frameworks heroku Homebrew include lib n opt README sbin share var .gitignore

So I tried

ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL"
Failed to locate Homebrew!

So I tried

rm -rf /usr/bin/.git and chown username /usr/local

But still the same.
How can I fix this issue. I need to have a fresh start.
My final purpose is to update current ruby2.0 to 2.2


Consider reading the Homebrew FAQ.

Scroll down the 4th FAQ listing enumerating : How do I uninstall Homebrew ?

Alternatively, try running this and then run the uninstall procedure as mentioned above -

cd /usr/local
git init
git remote add origin
git pull origin master
