The jQuery Empty method – .empty() is used to remove all the contents and children of the element.

Note: It does the remove the element itself. If you want to remove the element also then use jQuery Remove method.

jQuery Empty – .empty() syntax

I have a div that contains information of United States:

<div id="div1">
    Country:
    <p>Name: United States</p>
    <p>State: New York</p>
    <p>City: New York City</p>
</div> 

To remove all its content use .empty() method:

$("#div1").empty(); 

The Resulting div will have all its content removed:

<div id="div1">
</div>
