Vanish is a wizard spell that causes an object to vanish and optionally reappear in another location. It cannot be used on creatures or magical forces. The more powerful the caster, the larger and heavier an object can be made to vanish, but if the caster attempts an object beyond his or her power, the spell fails.[1]

If desired, the object can be put on the Ethereal Plane instead, in which case the object's point of origin will remain faintly magical. If a dispel magic spell is cast upon the point of origin, the object will reappear.[1]

Each time an item is vanished there is a 1% chance it will disintegrate and be lost, and a 1% chance that a creature from the Ethereal Plane can gain access to the Prime Material Plane at the point of origin of the object.[1]
