Removing CSS styles for a particular element

Removing CSS styles for a particular element

In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to remove/reset any previously added css styles for a particular element.

Consider we have a div element that is styled using the container class.

<div class="container"></div>
    color: #0003;
    font-weight: 500;

At some point we need to remove all styles added to the div element, we can do that by adding all css property with value initial.


@media only screen and (max-width: 1080px) {
  .container {
    all: initial;

The initial css keyword restores the element styles to the initial state or default state which is set by the browser.

Removing styles using JavaScript

We can also remove styles easily by removing the class name added to that element using JavaScript.

const el = document.querySelector('.container');
