Remove all gems

If you are using rvm and accidentally install gems with the 'sudo' command you can quickly remove all gems:

$ rvm use system && sudo gem list --no-versions | xargs sudo gem uninstall -a

Then you can just normally install bundler:

$ gem install bundle

And then leverage your gemfile:

$ bundle install

I think this tip about removing system gems, not gems from RVM gemset.
