Need Dropdown with blank / null default

How do you handle the default of a drop down when you want it to always be blank when opening? I have played with the default value and it always loads the first item no matter what I do.  The Items are coming up from an on-premise SQL database. Example: I have 4 drop downs for staff members that maybe on a truck, only the first one will be required and I want the app user to start with all blanks and fill in as needed

Hi,
I am new to PowerApps Recently Completed My  PowerApps Training
now we have a property called 'AllowEmptySelection' in powerapps. When Allow Empty Selection equals to true, it provides empty selection in drop down inside powerapps.

Set the Default to "0" instead of "1"

Another solution is available without having to create and clear collections.

AllowEmptySelection – Whether the control shows an empty selection if no item has been selected. App users can also clear their choices by selecting the blank item.
