Argus Filch tried unsuccessfully to remove the words which Ginny Weasley painted on wall of the second-floor corridor when she was being possessed by Tom Riddle's diary at Hogwarts with Mrs. Skower’s All-Purpose Magical Mess Remover. As a Squib, Filch may have relied on the product quite heavily, particularly since a whole crate of it was kept stored in the school's broom closet.
