How can I save the world from the spread of Hallow and Corruption/Crimson?

After the Wall of Flesh, the Hallow appears and Corruption/Crimson spreads even faster.

  • Corruption/Crimson spreads through everything
    • Except Hallow
  • Hallow spreads through everything
    • Except mud (jungle)
    • Except synthetic blocks like gray-brick
  • The results of Hallow and Corruption meeting are unpredictable

How can I stop them both permanently and effectively from taking over the world, considering both the top layer and underground?

(Eg, simply placing gray brick on top of the surface won’t stop the underground spread?)

And, is it worth the effort?


With the Clentaminator present in the game, this is actually quite easy, if a bit time consuming and expensive. Dig hellevators every 120 blocks across the area you want to purify. With the Green Solution equipped, float down the each hellevator twice, first spraying to the left, then to the right. I recently did this in one of my worlds, and it worked perfectly. I’d recommend checking every so often after you’re done to make sure you didn’t miss anything. This will also turn any underground mushroom biome to jungle, so you may want to go back when you’re done and convert it back with Dark Blue Solution.

When I did this, I left large swathes of land from the surface to the underworld converted, and even brought in Crimson from another world so I had all the biomes present. Just make sure that if you do this you put wider shafts (I left six blocks) around the corrupted/crimsoned/hallowed areas so they don’t spread.
