Clears ectoplasm[1] and frightens spirits[2]

"There is a way of cleaning away ectoplasm without resorting to a can of Mrs Scower's Magic Mess Remover, and this is with an effective scouring charm such as Skurge."
Miranda Goshawk[src]

The Skurge Scouring Charm[3] (Skurge) is a scouring charm[4] that can be used to clean up the sticky green ectoplasm created by passing ghosts[1] (not to be confused with the more versatile Scouring Charm). It can also be used to frighten spirits, including spectres or poltergeists such as Peeves, who lives in Hogwarts Castle.[1]


This is a rather basic spell, being taught by Professor Filius Flitwick to his second year charms class.[1] It is also included in The Standard Book of Spells, Grade 2 by Miranda Goshawk, as well as another spellbook that could be found in the Hogwarts Library.[1]
