There is no built-in functionality to do this - you essentially have to reinstall the operating system from scratch.

However, if you want to ensure that you can do it in the future, you can use a virtual machine system which supports snapshots (such as VMWare or VirtualBox), meaning you can revert to previous states.

Another option is to use a file system which supports snapshots, such as LVM or ZFS.
