"Ron was still in a very bad temper and kept blotting his Charms homework. When he reached absently for his wand to remove the smudges, it ignited the parchment. Fuming almost as much as his homework, Ron slammed The Standard Book of Spells, Grade 2 shut."

This spell removes ink smudges from parchment. In 1992, Ronald Weasley attempted to use this spell to clean up his Charms homework, but was in such a bad temper (along with a damaged wand) that he accidentally ignited the parchment instead.[1]
