Note: Classes are space-separated.

Example

<!DOCTYPE html> <html lang="en-US"> <head> <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.5.1/jquery.min.js"></script> <style> .point{ color: red; font-size: 22px; } .point1{ font-weight: bold; font-style: italic; } </style> </head> <body> <h1>jQuery removeClass() Method</h1> <p class="point point1">Click on the button to remove classes 'point' and 'point1' from this paragraph.</p> <button>Click Me</button> <script> $(document).ready(function(){ $("button").click(function(){ // no comma separator $("p").removeClass("point point1"); }); }); </script> </body> </html>

Remove All Classes
