In VBA how to I restore the Enter key to its original behavior after remapping it?

I used Application.OnKey to change the behavior of the Enter key. But once I tried to remove that behavior using the below, the enter keys no longer move the active cell one cell down as they do normally when pressed. How do I restore that without rebooting Excel?

Application.OnKey "~", ""
Application.OnKey "{ENTER}", ""
