A cleaning spell is a generic term for a spell used to make an object cleaner, such as the Scouring Charm or Skurge Scouring Charm. Ronald Weasley did not know many, if any, cleaning spells.
Behind the scenes
- Ron Weasley: "Brilliant! Mum would've made us clean those out by hand. We'd've still been scrubbing them at Christmas!"
- Hermione Granger: "If you'd just take the time to learn some cleaning spells..."
- Ron Weasley: "Who wants to spend their time cleaning things up? This was much more fun!"
- — Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger argue about the method Ron chose to clean Fred and George's old cauldrons
