"Oh, its a simple enough anti-jinx, but it's not so much having to repair the damage, it's more the attitude behind the vandalism, Harry. Muggle-baiting might strike some wizards as funny, but it's an expression of something much deeper and nastier, and I for one —"
Arthur Weasley[src]

An anti-jinx is a type of spell that prevents the effects of a jinx over a target.


The Cleansweep Eleven is polished with an anti-jinx varnish.

In August 1995, Arthur Weasley was assigned to use one of these to solve the problem of the regurgitating toilets that had been set up by the prankster Willy Widdershins.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • The Wizarding World of Harry Potter uses signs claiming that a building "currently has an anti-jinx in place" when one of the spell effects caused by the interactive wands sold at the park is malfunctioning.[2]
