Clear email field after submit

I'm trying to clear the email text box after it has been submitted and added to a text file. Here's what I have now:

<div class="mailWrap">
<form action="#" name="newsletterForm" id="newsletterForm">
Your E-mail: <input type="text" name="email" id="email" class="newsletterInput" /><br />
<input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Add My E-mail" class="newsletterButton" />
<span class="loader"><img src="loading.gif" alt="loading" /></span>

Not quite sure how to add a clear command to the email text box. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

What is actually processing the form submission? The action value of "#" will simply cause the form to be submitted back to the same HTML page. There's got to be more going on that you are showing us.
