Mop (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

swab

'mop' is the definition.
(I know that mop can be written as swab)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for swab that I've seen before include "Wound-cleaner" , "Absorbent surgical pad" , "Surgical cleaner" , "Cotton wool mop" , "Cloth for cleaning wounds" .)

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