Oh, lots of things. Household drain cleaner should do the job nicely, for

...but, you want to destroy them after they've been absorbed into someone's
brain, and preferably without killing the patient? That's a bit trickier,
unless there's a deactivation switch of some sort built into them you'll
probably need to give the patient a dose of counternanites specifically
programmed to track down and destroy the original nanites (and then
eliminate themselves) without damaging anything else.
