10 Brilliant Everyday Uses for 'Harry Potter' Spells

Geminio: The Doubling Charm

Geminio: The Doubling Charm

Now you can make free, worthless duplicates of your designer sunglasses and sell them on Ebay at full price. It’s not ethical or legal, but hey, when you’re broke, you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do!

Evanesco: The Vanishing Spell

Evanesco: The Vanishing Spell

There are so many uses for this amazing spell. Forgot to bring your ID to a bar and you see the bouncer coming up to you because he saw the drink your friend bought you? One little "Evanesco!" and there's no proof you were ever drinking.

Repelo Muggletum: The Muggle-Repelling Charm

Repelo Muggletum: The Muggle-Repelling Charm

Technically we’re all Muggles, so you can use this spell anywhere when you don’t want people to come near you. Use it while working at your office desk, relaxing at home, or shopping so you can just do your thing without being bothered. 

Reducio: The Shrinking Spell

Reducio: The Shrinking Spell

Is your carry-on suitcase much bigger and heavier than what’s allowed by the airline? Cast the shrinking spell and make it no bigger than a handbag. The airline attendant won’t be able to say a word to you!

Expulso: The Blasting Curse

Expulso: The Blasting Curse

This spell is great for those times when throwing all your old Microbiology notes in the trash can after a rough semester just isn’t grand enough of a farewell. Blowing it all up is a much better stress reliever!

Confundo: The Confusion Charm

Confundo: The Confusion Charm

If your roommate gets angry at you for eating his leftover pizza, cast this spell and pretend he’s the one who ate it. He’ll have no idea what to say or do, so you’re off the hook.

Lumos & Nox: The Lighting and Extinguishing Charms

Lumos & Nox: The Lighting and Extinguishing Charms

We haven’t gotten to the point where all lights have remotes or voice controls, so lumos and nox are a lazy person’s best friend. Cast it while you’re in bed and too hungover to get up and flick the light switch on or off. 

Obliviate: The Memory Charm

Obliviate: The Memory Charm

Be careful with this one, because you don’t want to end up like Gilderoy Lockhart. If you use it correctly, you can erase anything from people’s memories. Make your boss forget that he just saw you hiding in the bathroom to escape work. You could also make the Starbucks barista forget that you just used the same coupon for a free latte an hour ago!

Muffliato: The Muffling Spell

Muffliato: The Muffling Spell

Did you just see your ex and his new girlfriend at a restaurant while you’re out with your friends? Cast the Muffliato spell and you and your pals can gossip and laugh at them to your heart's content without them ever knowing what you’re saying.

Impervius: The Water-Repelling Charm

Impervius: The Water-Repelling Charm

With this spell, you will never need an umbrella or rain coat again. Wear whatever you want, cast it on yourself, and you will be completely protected from rain, sleet, and snow without the hassle of lugging around wet-weather gear. Cast it on your car too, and you’ll never need to use windshield wipers again!
