Repealing an amendment (to the US Constitution)

I've researched this and I think I understand it, but I really want to make sure, so:

I'm writing something in which an amendment that was added to the Constitution in the early 90's is repealed because it came to some disastrous results. How exactly would the amendment be repealed? Is it really as easy as making another amendment that says it's repealed (like with the first section of the 21st)? And how fast could a new amendment to repeal the old be ratified in a state of emergency with near-unanimous backing?

Thank you!
