remove route


easy one hopefully...
i wish to remove a route from my route tables.
results from route...

> route
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
localnet * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
localnet * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth1
loopback * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
default 10.0.0.138 0.0.0.0 UG 1 0 0 eth0

what syntax do i use to remove the second line (eth1)?

I have tried various combinations and permutations of 'route del...'
yes I tried 'man route', I would like a plain english answer though.
