Let me also ask: how do I make sure all my mods are gone, including root access?
Of course I looked in this forum but I couldn't find a comprehensive guide.
I want to return my 16GB and get a 32GB at least, maybe 64.

If you flash the stock image into the primary slot, then delete / uninstall Hashcode's Safestrap, then it should undo everything.

I think you can also do the "hold power button for 50 seconds" (or was it 20?) to do a reset.

I installed safestrap and immediately took a backup of the stock rom. I moved that backup folder to my PC.

If something crazy happens and I no longer have a bootable OS on any partition (but I can still get to safestrap recovery), can I restore that backup saved on my PC?

Thanks man I'll try the hard reset. I did do the first part but I still had root access afterwards (I could access root in ES File Explorer).

Unfortunately this didn't do anything other than rebooting.
I'm a bit stuck. I don't see Safestrap among my Apps installed, but it's there. Every time I reboot it takes me to the Safestrap screen where I can access recovery mode.
If Amazon sees that screen they'll never take it back. How do I actually get rid of it?
I only have the stock rom now.

Go into settings/applications/manage applications scroll down to safestrap and uninstall. I believe if you have su there is an unroot option within it.

Reinstall Safestrap then open it and click on Uninstall Recovery within the app. Reboot to make sure the Safestrap screen is gone, then you can uninstall the app.

Makes perfect sense, but unfortunately Safestrap wasn't in the Manage Applications list.

Yes, this did it! I still had root access so I reinstalled SuperSu and did an "Unroot". Now root access is gone. I think I can just restore to default and I'm ready to return it. Thanks everyone!
