property: unset;

<!DOCTYPE html>
        <title>CSS unset keyword</title>
            /* Color for all the child in parent element */
            div {
                color: green;
            /* Specific b and p element color */
            b, p {
                color: black;
            /* Performing revert for child */
            .rvt {
                color: unset;
        <!-- Parent elements -->
        <div class="container">
            <!-- Child elements -->
