"Good morning class. Today's lesson will most assuredly involve learning how to cast the Softening Charm, Spongify."
Filius Flitwick addresses his class[src]

The Softening Charm (Spongify) is a spell that softens a target area or object, making it rubbery and bouncy.[1][2]

History

The Softening Charm is part of the first-year Charms syllabus at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry,[1] and is later revised in second-year Defence Against the Dark Arts.[2]

  • A spellbook for this spell could be found somewhere within Hogwarts and was located by Harry Potter.
