Bleach is one of the many chemical compounds players can make in Minecraft Education Edition. To create bleach, players will need a lab table. Place three water and three sodium hypochlorites to make bleach in Minecraft. Sodium hypochlorite is created by combining sodium, chlorine, and oxygen.

In Minecraft Education Edition, players can use bleach instead of white dye. Bleach can turn wool, beds, banners, and carpets of any color into white.

4) Glow stick

The glow stick is the closest players can get to a lightsaber in Minecraft. Players can craft a glow stick by combining seven polyethylene, one hydrogen peroxide, and a dye.

Players can shake glow sticks to make them glow. Sadly, this item is just for aesthetic purposes as glow sticks do not produce any light. Glow sticks stop glowing after running out of durability points,

3) Medicines

In Minecraft Education Edition, players can craft four types of medicine: antidote, elixir, eye drops, and tonic. Medicines are the opposite of potions as they remove status effects instead of applying them.

Medicines are created in a brewing stand by adding specific chemicals to awkward potions. Here are the recipes for four medicines and their effects:

  • Add silver to make antidote. It cures poison.
  • Add cobalt to make elixir. It cures weakness.
  • Add calcium to make eye drops. It cures blindness.
  • Add bismuth to make tonic. It cures nausea.

2) Sparkler


Players can enjoy sparklers in Minecraft Education Edition. To craft sparkers, players need chloride salt, magnesium, and sticks. Sparkler's color depends on the type of chloride salt used for making it.

  • Calcium chloride: Orange
  • Cerium chloride: Blue
  • Mercuric chloride: Red
  • Potassium chloride: Purple
  • Tungsten chloride: Green

1) Balloons
