"From the Ectobuster range, no non-magical family who wants a clean house should be without one."
Folio Bruti[src]

Ectobuster (also known simply as Vacuum)is a brand of vacuum cleaner. Arthur Weasley owned several Ectobuster vacuums, which he enchanted to behave like a living creature. The vacuums turned hostile, however, and would attack anyone who came in their vicinity. Ectobuster vacuums are vulnerable to the Knockback Jinx, the Verdimillious Charm, and Vermillious, but are resistant to the flames of the Fire-Making Spell.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • This vacuum is presumably a reference to the film Ghostbusters, whose protagonists use vacuum-like "proton packs" to suck ghosts into traps.
