You can use benign dispel to dispel magic you have created or cast yourself. You can choose to suppress a single magic item you created, dispel a single targeted spell, all spells on a single targeted object or creature, or a single spell on each object or creature in a 20-ft.-radius burst.
A dispelled spell ends as if its duration had expired. Some spells, as detailed in their descriptions, cant be defeated by benign dispel. Benign dispel can dispel spell-like effects just as it does spells, but not supernatural effects.
If you cast it on a magic item you have created, all the items magical properties are suppressed for 1d4 rounds, after which the item recovers on its own. A suppressed item becomes nonmagical for the duration of the effect. An interdimensional interface (such as a bag of holding) is temporarily closed. A magic items physical properties are unchanged: A suppressed magic sword is still a sword (a masterwork sword, in fact).
