Mrs Skower’s All-Purpose Magical Mess Remover is a magical cleaning solution. An advertisement for it at the Quidditch World Cup in 1994 featured the slogan "No Pain, No Stain!" According to Mathilda Grimblehawk, the solution has a rather distinctive strong, acrid smell.
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.
