If you’re a fan of the Harry Potter series, you’ve seen all the different ways that magic makes wizard and witches’ lives easier. It’s easy to want to disappear to J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world, where there’s seemingly a solution for everything.
Being a muggle is boring and difficult in comparison to the wizarding world. However, with the help of magic, it can be improved. We picked our favorite spells and potions that would make our muggle lives just so much easier and exciting.
OK, so we kind of have this on our phones already. On your Android, if you say “Hey Google” and then “Lumos,” you can activate your flashlight. Very cool. But we still can’t get over this classic Harry Potter spell. Plus, what if we lose our phones like silly muggles are prone to do?
2. Weasleys’ Patented Daydream Charm
Created by Fred and George Weasley for the Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes shop, this charm-in-a-box was even banned by Hogwarts. The product causes the user to have vivid daydreams for up to 30 minutes. Side effects include drooling and a dazed expression, which is a fair price to pay for daydreams that wickedly cool.
Can you think about how awesome this spell would be? Next time something of yours breaks, just get out your wand and mend it back together seamlessly. No more crying over spilled milk, broken glass, ripped band shirts or even broken computers.
4. Scourgify, The Scouring Charm
And speaking of things that would be better if they could just magically fix themselves, what about cleaning? Scourgify is a spell that magically cleans any surface, and you are lying if you think you don’t need that in your life. You can also use it to put soap in someone’s mouth, so really the possibilities are endless.
5. Undetectable Extension Charm
More fuel to the theory that Mary Poppins was a witch, but there’s a wizarding world spell that lets you extend your bag way past its physical limitations. How helpful would this be at concerts or plane rides? We don’t know if this changes the weight of the bag, though, which brings us to our next spell.
6. Feather-light Charm
The feather-light charm makes whatever you’re carrying as light as a feather. No more tweaked backs or struggling to lift heavy objects. Just this simple charm can change how you carry yourself and your bag.
7. Flying Charm
The flying charm is the secret to how brooms, magic carpets (and we’re guessing the Ford Anglia) can fly. Sure, you could want an authentic Harry Potter Firebolt to fly around on. Or you could just use the charm and enchant any object you want to fly. Flying skateboard? Why not.
8. Silencio, The Silencing Charm
Because we all want a little peace and quiet in our lives (especially after flying our skateboard around). The silencing charm can be used on any target to make them effectively silent. Great for annoying dogs that won’t stop barking or neighbors who won’t turn down their music.
