Going on summer vacations at my grandma’s place was no different. Her place was a regular cleaning boot camp! She had a special way of washing dishes, which I had to follow step by step. I had to wash my own clothes, keep my clothes neatly folded, and share in the household chores. My brother and my boy cousin, of course, shirked their duty, but I never did because I was a wuss I was totally scared of granny. I actually mastered the art of cleaning (actually, the art of dusting, because my older cousin is one mean cleaning machine), but I didn’t find it fun. Ever.
- Turn off the water supply (Of course). Get down on your knees and find the valve under your sink and turn it off.
- Grab your husband’s tool kit and dismantle the faucet to see where the problem is. Make sure you use the right type and size of pliers and adjustable wrench.
- Try not to scratch the faucet’s soft metal parts by wrapping masking tape around your pliers or wrench.
- Remove your faucet’s worn-out washer and put a new one.
- Remove dirt and sediments on the faucet’s stem.
