My css stays in the color of mediumorchid, can't change it

I tried erasing the "color: mediumorchid" from the styles.css file and even tried "color: black". I cannot get rid of the mediumorchid color for my text. Do you have any advice?

Kortney Field Did you refresh the page? If that didn't work then try a hard refresh. On a mac this is the following keys: "cmd shift R" and on a Windows "ctrl R". If that doesn't work, include your code and I will look over it.

It's actually "ctrl shift R" for Windows.

THANK YOU! That did the trick!

Sometimes your browser still tries to reference the original version of the css file so you need to do a hard refresh to fix it!
