I'm not sure how you have your form set up but this is a way to do it.  In the fiddle, you can see how I've cleared all the inputs using jquery.  Clear Fields Fiddle

The heavy lifter is this bit of code:

function clearForm($form) {
    $form.find('input:text, input:password, input:file, select').val('');
    $form.find('input:radio, input:checkbox').removeAttr('checked').removeAttr('selected');

That you call on your button click and pass it the ID of your Form area.
