  • Short version: no, you can't use hide. Long version: there was a question here on ELL just a few days ago about "hide". You can search for it. "hide" means "to conceal" so that nobody finds something. This word has nothing to do with making something disappear. Nov 1, 2017 at 6:59
  • Btw what are the other words which can be used to mean same as to make disappear?

The magician made her vanish from the stage. (evanesce, dematerialize, fade away/out, evaporate...). These are all synonyms of "vanish".
