How To Remove Css In Jquery

jQuery is a popular JavaScript library that makes it easy to perform many common tasks such as DOM manipulation, animation, and event handling. One of the useful features of jQuery is the ability to remove CSS from HTML elements. In this blog post, we will walk you through various methods to remove CSS in jQuery.

1. Remove Inline CSS using removeAttr() method

The removeAttr() method can be used to remove the inline CSS ‘style’ attribute from the selected HTML elements, effectively removing any inline CSS.

For example, let’s say we have the following HTML:

<div id="example" style="width: 200px; height: 100px; background-color: red;"></div>

To remove the inline CSS using jQuery:


2. Remove Specific CSS Properties using css() method

Using the css() method, you can remove specific CSS properties by setting their value to an empty string.

For example, let’s say we want to remove the ‘background-color’ property:

$('#example').css('background-color', '');

Or, to remove multiple properties at once, you can pass an object containing the properties to be removed:

    'width': '',
    'height': ''

3. Remove CSS Classes using removeClass() method

If you want to remove CSS classes from an element, you can use the removeClass() method. This method removes one or multiple class names from the selected elements.

For example, let’s say we have the following HTML:

<div id="example" class="red-background large-text"></div>

To remove a single class, use:


To remove multiple classes, separate them with spaces:

$('#example').removeClass('red-background large-text');


In this blog post, we’ve covered three methods for removing CSS in jQuery: using removeAttr() to remove inline CSS, using css() to remove specific CSS properties, and using removeClass() to remove CSS classes. With these methods at your disposal, you’ll have better control over the styling of your web pages using jQuery.
