As you see below, I've made a shape and I added round corners to it from Effect > Stylize > Round Corners, but now I want to bring it back to its original shape so I can make the edges less rounded.

Is there a way to clear the effect? I've tried Object > Path > Clean Up but it doesn't do anything.

Whip up the Appearance panel, either with Window > Appearance or Shift+F6. In there, you should see the Round Corners effect be named.

the Appearance panel with a Round Corners instance

You can either drag the effect to the panel's waste bin and start anew, or click the effect's name to have its dialogue box pop up again, where you can edit the effect to your heart's content.
