background color in a form field

I have a form with many text input fields and the fields are located in a table. Initially the text input fields have some kind of background color.
I use an external .js file to do edit check on the fields passing the form as parameter. If any fields are wrong, the .js file will change its background color to red and display an error msg for user to correct the error. Then the user will try to submit the form again and the .js file will again do the edit check. If the newly corrected field has no error, I want to change its background color to its initial background color. How do I remember that initial background color in javascript? Becaus now the input background color is red at this point.
Any help will be appreciated,
Soft Music
