Question Problem with fillable PDF forms / Dropbox

iPad model A1432. iOS Version 9.3.5

Hello everyone, I am new to iOS and have made a custom PDF application form for customers, to be filled out on my iPad. The problem is that when I go to edit the "blank" master file, Adobe retains the old form data...meaning I have no blank master for the next customer. I'm trying to find a way around this.

Using a custom PDF form I created along with Dropbox and Adobe it works...to a point. I open the blank "master" file in Dropbox, tell it to open in Adobe. I edit it, I save it to Dropbox in another directory with a different file name. All good. However, even after closing that all up..when I reopen Dropbox and click on the original blank PDF and open it again in Adobe, Adobe retains the previous form data with seemingly no easy way to delete every field with just a push.

I need to be able to bring up a blank "master" form every time, have a customer fill it out and then be able to save it to Dropbox, etc. As it is, I am unable to do this.

Is there another free PDF program that won't do this? Is there a way in Adobe to clear an entire form data with one push?
-or-
Should I be doing this another way? I'm open to suggestions, I was toying with the idea of putting a form on my WordPress site, but this was the fast easy way (creating fillable PDF forms and saving online.)
