This datapack can clear redstone for you automatically, all you have to do is stand back and watch it work.
How to install:
1. download the datapack
2. move the datapack into .minecraft > saves > your_save > datapacks
You can now type /function redstone:give_remover in chat to obtain the special spawn egg.
Now just right click near some redstone and the datapack will clear any redstone that it is touching. It will also pick up items from the ground and stack them where it stops.
IMPORTANT: The more redstone branching there is, the more lag you will get. It is also important that you do not summon a lot of these "removers" for performance reasons.
