How do I remove multiple words from a strting in python

I know that how do I remove a single word. But I can’t remove multiple words. Can you help me?
This is my string and I want to remove "Color:", "Ring size:" and "Personalization:".

string = "Color:Silver,Ring size:6 3/4 US,Personalization:J"

>Solution :

Seems like a good job for a regex.

Specific case:

import re

out = re.sub(r'(Color|Ring size|Personalization):', '', string)

Generic case (any word before :):

import re

out = re.sub(r'[^:,]+:', '', string)

Output: 'Silver,6 3/4 US,J'

Regex:

[^:,]+   # any character but , or :
:        # followed by :

replace with empty string (= delete)
