Do you have control of the markup? If so i would suggest using multiple classes instead of a compound one i.e.
<li class="Bleu1 Selected">

You can then identify this through css/jQuery like

li.Bleu1.Selected

then if you want to remove selected you can do $('li.Bleu1.Selected').removeClass('Selected');

This makes selecting all Selected ones alot easier and likewise all Bleu1 ones easier

With the above comment, an example to reset all selected would simply be $('.Selected').removeClass('Selected');

You may use : http://api.jquery.com/attribute-contains-selector/


$("li[class*='Selected']").each(function() {
				prevClass = $(this).attr("className");
				nextClass = prevClass.replace("Selected","");
				$(this).removeClass(prevClass).addClass(nextClass);
			});

Simple:

$("li[class*='Selected']").each(function()
{
    var class = $(this).attr("class");
    class.replace("Selected", "");
    $(this).attr("class", class);
});

Give this a go!
