Reset customizer, thanks to this plugin, you can have a reset button. You just have to install and activate it, like any other free plugin.

Once installed, you just have to go to the customizer and there you find a new button, “Reset”.

If you press it, you will get a warning that the customizer settings will be reset to their default values for the theme you have active, and that this is irreversible.

If you accept it, you are done!
