Abandon brush (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

scrub

Here is my best explanation:

This clue is a double definition.

'abandon' is the first definition.

(thesaurus)

'brush' is the second definition.

(scrub brush is a kind of brush)

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for scrub that I've seen before include "Stunted vegetation", "Eradicate", "Clean by rubbing really hard", "Rub hard with a brush", "Rub hard - low vegetation", "plants", "Cleanse", "Brush - clean", "Wash vigorously" and "Wash the stunted shrub?".)
