"With this powerful curse, skilled wizards can easily reduce obstacles to pieces. For obvious reasons great care must be exercised when learning and practising this spell, lest you find yourself sweeping up in detention for it is all too easy to bring your classroom ceiling crashing down, or to reduce your teacher's desk to a fine mist."
Miranda Goshawk[src]

The Reductor Curse[3] (Reducto[1]) is a curse that can be used to blast solid objects into pieces[1]. It is rather easy to reduce a target to a fine mist[3] or a pile of ashes[2].
