To use Brush in Minecraft, you’ll first have to find Suspicious blocks or Gravel blocks. Once you find it, equip Brush and press the Use button to excavate the item the block holds. On PC press right-click, on PS hold L2, and on Xbox hold LT, while looking at the block. Using the brush on a regular block won’t work. For those who are not aware, the Suspicious Blocks are found in Warm Ocean Ruins and Desert Pyramids/ Temples. Whereas the Gravel blocks are found in Cold Ocean Ruins and on some overworld structures. Do note the Brush has a 64 durability, which means you only get 64 brush attempts.
