If you want to clean or replace your bathroom sink plug, you may be wondering how to go about removing it. If so, read on to learn everything you'll need to know about sink plug removal.
Step 1 - Shut off Your Water
Before removing your bathroom sink plug, you must first shut off your water. If you want to be extra cautious, feel free to shut off the sink's water supply, too.
Step 2 - Remove Your Sink Plug
Having turned off your water, use your fingers to carefully fish out your sink plug. If you have a pop-up sink plug, gently pull on its miniature chain until it is successfully detached. After removing your sink plug, set it atop a clean washcloth.
Step 3 - Clean Your Sink Plug
If your sink plug is dirty, proceed to wipe it down with a dampened washcloth. If need be, you may also incorporate the aid of a mild brand of soap. Once the plug has been given a thorough cleaning, carefully reinsert it. However, if your plug is exceptionally filthy and/or worn out, you may want to consider replacing it. Should you choose to replace it, make sure to purchase a plug that is the right size to accommodate your bathroom sink's drain.
