So, Here are some options for clearing that nasty taint.
Silverwood saplings are hard to get, but they might reward you greatly for your efforts.
Some silverwood trees have Pure Nodes inside of them. Pure nodes remove nearby taint, but might be destroyed if they remove too much.
I recommend this to those who don't mine farming for items, and want to contain an area of taint.
This is my personal favorite method for clearing taint. Ethereal Blooms remove any taint in an eight block radius, and revert the block it's standing on to it's original biome. Though you might create more taint then you're solving if you can't get the crafting down.
I recommend this for blocking off taint and removing taint.
"Wuss Mode" (Config)
If you activate wuss mode in the config, it will stop taint from spreading and causing effects in a world with taint already in it, and removes all traces of taint from a newly created world.
Hoped this helped!
