how to wipe external hard drive

hi, I have 2 spare hard drives that im prob going to try and sell on ebay, both drives were from brand new laptops that I removed when replacing with an ssd, im 99% sure I didnt enter any information or use these hard drives but to be sure I would like to wipe them clean/reset windows to factory conditions, the problem I have is I only have one laptop and getting access to the hard drive is very ackward and tricky so dont really want to do it that way, is there a way of me being able to connect these hard drives to my laptop and then wiping this way with something like this

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sata-Hard-D.../dp/B003MVVPZI

if this works for connecting the hard drive can I then wipe it using my current computer without losing anything on my ssd thats inside the latop?

I hope someone can understand what im trying to say, any help/feedback is appreciated! thanks

Yeah those work fine. Make sure it's the right size (2.5 for laptop drives usually). It'll just show as a USB drive which you can format without affecting your ssd.
