A word typically found in nothern British slang, around the areas of the north-west of England, namely Greater Manchester and Merseyside.
The word scrubber refers to those of the lower working class, characterized by wearing shell suits (full tracksuits for those who don't know), living on council estates and benefits. Scrubbers are notoriously tight with what money they do have, have no regard for personal hygiene and tend to be loud, rude and arrogant. They are very similar in this respect to chavs
, only less clean and with a tendency to have a much higher opinion of themselves. When questioned or confronted about this, they can be defensive and violent. Alcohol and drugs are almost certain to be in the vicinity of a scrubber, the money that regular people would spend on hygiene, food and other normalcies is almost always spent on alcohol and drugs, usually in huge quantities, even in front of their usually many children, which sadly results in those kids growing up knowing nothing better.

"Check out that dirty chick. What a scrubber!"
A young woman of ill-repute whose parted legs are constantly in the company of men. Considered by some to be the junior version of the slapper
her dress code is risqué and her mannerisms are ungracefully common. As a result of her ‘laid back’ lifestyle she very rarely is able to hold down a full-time job and relies on government pay outs and funding from then-boyfriends to survive. This financial hardship means she is forced to cut back on luxuries such as soap, although she still manages to afford the ‘necessities’ of booze and cigarettes. On occasion when she does hold down a full-time job she will rarely curb her natural habits and is likely to be very famous among her co-workers for being a slut
"Scrubber" is probably of British origin, used as a detrogatory term to describe scullery maids or other low-ranking women in domestic service. These were often young women viewed by higher-ranking people as licentious and dirty (particularly their hands). Due to the lack of occupations for women in the 19th and early 20th century women usually were forced to work in service or as prostitutes, and many had dealings with both. The actual term "scrubber" may refer either to her occupation of scouring floors, or to the actual implement used to clean the floor - the scrubbing brush.
