    Yes, iTunes will do a full restore.
    Connect your iPhone to your computer, launch iTunes, then restart your iPhone holding both Home and power until you see the icon on your iPhone screen to connect to iTunes.
    Then, you will be able to completely erase, and restore your iPhone to factory fresh, and the latest iOS (version 9.3.3 is current)

    By the way - your poll choices have the same meaning (dunno = don't know)

    I'm running an iPhone 6 jailbreak on 9.02. Would I follow the same method above?

    Also, before I unjailbreak, if I backup my phone can I then restore from backup without restoring any remnants of the jailbreak?

    No, you should definitely restore and setup as new.

    Thanks barks. So, restore and setup as new will be done. But thereafter can I restore from backup? Or DO NOT RESTORE FROM BACKUP AT ALL?

    Personally I've never come across an issue using an iCloud back up made on a JB iPhone on my then non JB iPhone.

    Thanks bofb. I'd be backing it up from my Mac. Would that be the same as from iCloud?

    I need to return my phone due to a dodgy home button.

    You want to deinstall the jailbreak huh? That's a first one:)
    We usually hear unjailbreak.
    Just plug it to itunes and hit restore like said above. Setup as new.
    Do not click update, make sure you select restore.
