Wears away (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

erodes

'wears away' is the definition.
('erode' can be a synonym of 'wear away')

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for erodes that I've seen before include "Eats away" , "Wears away as by time or water" , "Wears away with weather" .)

I've seen this clue in the USA Today, the Penny Press, The Daily Mail and the Evening Standard.
