The method used here is to remove the Header widget by going to Layouts and clicking on "Edit" and then "Remove this page element". But the problem is that many of the users does not have a "Remove this page element" button on the Header's Edit options. But there is way around to get the "Remove this page element" option on your Header's Edit options. To get that what you have to do is:

Go to 'Edit HTML' and look up for this line of text: (between <> brackets)

b:widget id='Header1' locked='true' title='Your Title (Header)' type='Header'/

Then change 'true' to 'false'. Save the template and go to 'Page Elements', now the button 'Remove Page Element' in Header should appear.
