"She cleaned the cut with a dab of some purple liquid that smoked and stung, but then poked his shoulder with her wand, and he felt it heal instantly."
Madam Pomfrey attending to Harry Potter's wounds[src]

The Wound-Cleaning Potion, or Wound Cleaning Potion,[2] was a healing potion that was used to sterilise wounds as a powerful antiseptic. It smoked and stung when applied.[1]

History

"Today I will teach you how to correctly brew a Wound-Cleaning Potion. I suspect we'll need it with this careless class. The potion stings when applied, but I promise a failing grade will sting more."
— Professor Snape to sixth-year Potions students[src]

During the 1989–1990 school year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Professor Severus Snape taught his sixth-years how to concoct this particular brew in Potions class.[2]

Madam Pomfrey used it on Harry Potter when he was injured during the first task of the Triwizard Tournament in 1994, in the Hospital Wing at Hogwarts.[1]
