Some plugins inadvertently set global options. I have the following code at the top of my vimrc, and set all options to my preferred values using the SetOption command. Whenever I want to reset options I do :ResetOptions which resets all user-defined options previously set by SetOption.

let s:option_preferences = []
function! ResetOption(options)
  if empty(a:options)
    let options = s:option_preferences
  else
    let options = a:options
  endif
  for name in options
    let name0 = 'g:'. name .'_default'
    if exists(name0)
      exec 'let &'. name .' = '. name0
    endif
  endfor
endfunction

command! -nargs=* ResetOption :call ResetOption([<f-args>])
command! -nargs=+ SetOption let s:tmlargs=[<f-args>]
 \ | for arg in s:tmlargs[1:-1]
 \ |   if arg =~ '^[+-]\?='
 \ |     exec 'set '.s:tmlargs[0] . arg
 \ |   else
 \ |     exec 'let &'.s:tmlargs[0] .'='. arg
 \ |   endif
 \ | endfor
 \ | call add(s:option_preferences, s:tmlargs[0])
 \ | exec 'let g:'. s:tmlargs[0] .'_default = &'. s:tmlargs[0]
 \ | unlet s:tmlargs

ExamplesEdit

Add and remove specific options

:SetOption cpo +=my -=M

Set the value

:SetOption ts 4
:SetOption ts =4

Just cache the predefined value so that it can be restored later
In this example a later reset would be the same as :set tw&

:SetOption tw

Reset specific options

:ResetOption ts tw

Reset all user-set options

:ResetOption

In order to monitor the options setting, I display changed values in &statusline.

set statusline=%1*[%{winnr()}:%02n]%*\ %2t\ %(%M%R%H%W%k%)\ %=%{TmlStatusline()}\ %3*<%l,%c%V,%p%%>%*

function! TmlStatusline()
  let opt = "<". &syntax ."/". &fileformat .">"
  if !&backup | let opt=opt." no-bak" |endif
  if !&et | let opt=opt." no-et" |endif
  if &list | let opt=opt." list" |endif
  if &paste | let opt=opt." paste" | endif
  if !&expandtab | let opt=opt." tab" | endif
  if &ts != g:ts_default | let opt=opt.' ts='.&ts | endif
  if &sw != g:sw_default | let opt=opt.' sw='.&sw | endif
  if &tw != g:tw_default | let opt=opt.' tw='.&tw | endif
  if &wm != g:wm_default | let opt=opt.' wm='.&wm | endif
  if &enc != g:enc_default | let opt=opt.' enc='.&enc | endif
  if &ve != g:ve_default | let opt=opt.' ve='. &ve | endif
  if &fo != g:fo_default | let opt=opt.' fo='. &fo | endif
  if &cpo != g:cpo_default | let opt=opt.' cpo='. &cpo | endif
  if &bin | let opt=opt.' [bin]' | endif
  if &foldlevel != s:foldlevel | let opt=opt.' F'.&foldlevel | endif
  let opt=opt." | ".strftime("%d-%b-%Y %H:%M")
  return opt
endfunction

CommentsEdit

Here is a slightly modified version:

let s:options = {}
function! ResetOption(options)
  if empty(a:options)
    let options = keys(s:options)
  else
    let options = a:options
  endif
  for name in options
    exec 'let &'. name .' = s:options[name]'
  endfor
endfunction

command! -nargs=* ResetOption :call ResetOption([<f-args>])
command! -nargs=+ SetOption let s:tmlargs=[<f-args>]
 \ | for arg in s:tmlargs[1:-1]
 \ |   if arg =~ '^[+-]\?='
 \ |     exec 'set '.s:tmlargs[0] . arg
 \ |   else
 \ |     exec 'let &'.s:tmlargs[0] .'='. arg
 \ |   endif
 \ | endfor
 \ | exec 'let s:options[s:tmlargs[0]] = &'. s:tmlargs[0]
 \ | unlet s:tmlargs

let s:option_labels = {'fdl': 'F'}
function! TmlStatusline()
  let opt = "<". &syntax ."/". &fileformat .">"
  if !&backup | let opt=opt." no-bak" |endif
  if !&et | let opt=opt." no-et" |endif
  if &list | let opt=opt." list" |endif
  if &paste | let opt=opt." paste" | endif
  if !&expandtab | let opt=opt." tab" | endif
  for [o, v] in items(s:options)
    exec 'let oo = &'.o
    if oo != v
      let opt .= ' '. (has_key(s:option_labels, o) ? s:option_labels[o] : o.'=') . oo
    endif
  endfor
  if &bin | let opt=opt.' [bin]' | endif
  if exists('b:compressed') | let opt=opt.' ['.b:compressed.']' | endif
  let opt=opt." | ".strftime("%d-%b-%Y %H:%M")
  return opt
endfunction
