Enchantments in Minecraft Bedrock update 1.19 are certain bonuses that improve the overall performance of a tool, weapon, armor or piece of equipment. Although players frequently enchant their gear, there is also a way to disenchant them.
The primary reason for an item being disenchanted may be that the enchantment itself is no longer needed by the player or has been applied to an item by mistake. Players can enchant items through an enchantment table or an anvil with an enchanted book. Novice players usually enchant items from enchantment tables, while experienced players trade specific enchanted books with librarians.
While the ways to enchant an item are fairly well known, if players want to disenchant an item, there are several ways to do so.
Guide to Disenchanting Items in Minecraft Bedrock Update 1.19 Using Blocks and Crafting Slots
Using a Grinding Block
Similar to how enchantment tables and anvils are blocks that can apply enchantments to an item, there is a specific block that can also remove enchantments from items. The block is called a millstone. Grindstone’s main function is to repair and remove enchantments from equipment. The only exceptions are curse enchantments which cannot be removed from equipment in any way.
This block can be easily crafted by combining two sticks, two wooden planks, and a stone slab. The stone slab can be in the middle of two sticks, followed by two wooden planks just below the sticks. The grinding wheel can also be placed on walls and ceilings.
If players want to disenchant an item, they can simply right-click on the block and place the item in the left slot. The block will remove all kinds of enchantments from the item and give a normal version of it.
If players want to repair an enchanted item by combining it with another item, the grindstone will again remove all enchantments and yield a normal version of the item. In any case, this block will remove all bonuses except curses.
The good part is that once it removes enchantments from an item, it gives back XP points to the player based on the enchantment level and its value.
Repairing Items in Crafting Slots
Alternatively, another method of removing enchantments from an item is to simply repair them in normal crafting slots. If players have two similar items with low durability, they can simply place them in their own 2×2 crafting slots to repair them. They can also perform this action on a crafting table.
However, if they repair an enchanted item, the game will remove all enchantments except curses and give a normal repaired version of the item. The only caveat is that players will need to repair the item by combining it with another similar item.
