How to fix a cracked bathroom sink???

Somebody please help! I'm moving out of an apartment soon, and I need to fix a cracked sink so I won't get charged for it!!

The crack in the bathroom sink has a small hole in the middle too. What can I use to fix it? and HOW do i fix it? Also, please give me a product name too...because I don't have a clue when it comes to this stuff.

Thanks lot!

Cool

If it is white procelain, you MIGHT be able to get away with a repair.
There is a liquid product called Appliance Touch-Up made to repair chips in bright white enamel appliances. It may even come in colors, but I've only seen and used white.
It comes in a little bottle with a cap brush (like a nail polish applicator). You just brush it on the crack and into the small hole, and allow it to dry overnight. It shrinks a bit, so you may need to do the hole twice.
It drys hard as a rock, and I've used it to repair chips in our tubs for years.
Use acetone (nail polish remover) on a Q-tip to smooth up the edges right after you apply it.
You can find it at most appliance stores, hardware stores, etc.
Good Luck!
Mike
