Caulk around kitchen faucets?

The faucet assembly on my stainless steel kitchen sink is loose and wobbly. It looks to me like the caulk or cement that sealed it to the sink is crumbling. What do I need to do to fix this? Thx.

There are two nuts under the sink that hold the faucet in place. The caulking is only there to prevent water from leaking down under the sink. You should be able to easily tighten these nuts to secure the faucet. If you want, you can loosen them first and put some plumbers putty under the faucet to keep it watertight. Good luck.

Eeeeewwwww! I suppose that means I have to go under there. Oh well, guess that means I have to clean that cupboard out. Thanks for the help.
