Arthur Weasley[src]

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

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

History

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 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]
