Rub hard (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

scrub

'rub hard' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for scrub that I've seen before include "Cancel (informal)" , "Rub hard to clean" , "Stunted growth" , "Get rid of" , "Cleanse" .)

I've seen this clue in The Independent, the Evening Standard, the Penny Press and The Mirror.
