How Do You Eliminate Highlighting of Text in MS Word 2016?

Problem scenario
Some text in MS Word 2016 is highlighted with a color as part of its formatting.  No matter what you do (including highlighting it and clicking "No color") the text remains highlighted.   What should you do?

Highlight the text (with either the mouse or by holding shift and pressing an arrow key) then press Ctrl and the Spacebar (hold control and tap the spacebar).  This should eliminate formatting.
