Well, the easiest way to reverse the polarity of a magnet is to just turn it around. However, inside of every piece of steel, there are magnetized pieces that will make the steel an induced magnet when a magnet is placed on or by the steel. By putting the oppositely polarized magnet on or by the same steel, you may be able to reverse the magnetism of the steel. Or by making it a core of a coil in which direct current flows in such a direction as to re-polarize it
