Remove formatting from text

Sometimes, I want to copy text from one site to a Google Doc or email and keep the existing default text formatting that I already have, rather than the text and background colour and font styles from the site I copied from. I could use ctrl + shift + V to paste without formatting, or ctrl + \ to clear all formatting from selected text. However, I also want to keep some formatting, such as italicized text.

  1. Paste text with formatting into the text box below.

  2. Click the "Copy clean text" button.

The left text box shows the HTML that was in your clipboard, and the right side shows the cleaned HTML.
