From the developer tab on the ribbon (not displayed by default - Office
Button > Word Options > Popular > Show Developer tab) select Document

Select all CTRL+A, apply the Normal style, CTRL+Q then CTRL+Space will
remove all manualy formatting and set the style to that defined as Normal.
Then ALT+F8 > organizer and delete all the styles except Normal. You will
not be able to remove any of the built-in styles.
