Always hire a plumber if the clogging is severe and cannot be solved by these methods. There is a possibility that there is some major plumbing work that needs to be undertaken for it, which is best done by a plumber.
In case you want to replace the cartridge with a new one, purchase the one which exactly matches the existing one. Ensure that the stem end where the handle joins also matches.
Now, you need to remove the faucet handle. All handles have a screw, which is either superficial or concealed. Look around and locate the handle screw. Using the adjustable wrench, gently unscrew the handle. Taping the tip of the wrench with some duct tape can help in protecting the handle from developing scratch marks.
Wearing protective gloves is advisable before you begin cleaning a kitchen sink. Other supplies that you will require include white vinegar solution, a soft bristle brush, sponges and clean kitchen towels. In case you are using a commercial cleansing agent, do not apply it directly. Instead, conduct a spot test to see if it is safe for the porcelain sink or not. If yes, then only proceed for the further cleaning process.
