  1. Start with "U".
  2. Add another "U".
  3. Remove the "U".

What is the word?

Hint: It's not "U" (or "you", "ewe", etcetera).

Double

Because:

  1. You start with U.
  2. You add another U, so you get

UU - a double U (W).

  1. You remove a U, and you're stuck with

double.

    $\begingroup$ @Jordy But a good riddle should have only one answer that fits everything properly. $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Mar 2 '15 at 17:41
