Behind the scenesEdit

  • At first sight, this spell seems to change one thing into another, rather than adding properties to it, technically making it a transfiguration spell, despite being taught in Charms class. However, when one considers that vinegar is produced through the oxidation of ethanol it is entirely possible that what this charm does is revert that naturally occurring mechanism and not transform one thing to another, stricto sensu — effectively making it a Charm spell.
