To Brush Away Your Troubles is a spell written in the Book of Shadows. Fearing the bad luck associated with Friday the 13th, Piper Halliwell cast this spell in an attempt to banish any misfortune that may come her way.
In 1999, while holding a superstition-themed fundraiser at Quake, Piper was weary of the superstition surrounding Friday the 13th. Piper believed it was a day where anything bad that could happen, would happen, as it was the day she had met Jeremy Burns. For this reason, Piper brought various charms and artifacts said to bring good luck to Quake with her.
After Prue knocked over some salt, Piper cut her finger slicing vegetables, ripped her skirt and crossed paths with a woman dressed as a black cat. In an attempt to solve her misfortune, Piper went into the kitchen and cast this spell with a lit Sage Stick. However, the smoke triggered the smoke detector. Trying to avoid being questioned by her staff, Piper dipped the stick in a pot of boiling water, scalding her fingers.
