Dust-be-gone is a linear spell mentioned, but not witnessed, in Lynn Abbey's Ultima Saga. As its name implies, it likely is used to clean dust from a surface.


Balthan displayed a talen for magic from the start. He taught himself the spells of linear magic: handfire, hearthfire, dust-be-gone, stir-the-pot--spells so simple they lacked proper names. But when Balthan set a waxed, knotted thread in the chicken coop and the poor birds scratched all day in sun-wise circles, Erwald sent him straight to the arcane Lyceum south of the city of Moonglow.[1]
