Now at the spot, the recessed lip of the sink - the place where you would install the new strainer - apply a bead of plumber's putty.
In case of a highly stained stainless steel sink, you can use a stainless steel cleanser. Rinse the sink with hot water and then scrub it with a sponge containing the cleanser. Use a soft brush (or toothbrush) to clean the faucet and the areas around it. After scrubbing, wipe the sink and rinse it with water. Make sure that the cleanser is removed completely. Otherwise, it can leave spots. Use a clean cloth or towel to wipe and dry the sink.
Finish off by fixing everything back in reverse order. Fix the last thing you dismantled for reassembling the whole faucet ensemble. Again cleaning up the faucet at this point will be a good idea to keep it free of dirt, mildew, and grime. Once you reassemble the unit, test it by turning on the cold and hot water to make sure that there are no leaks.
Start by taking the handle off. Do this by removing the decorative cap and the handle screw. The cartridge may be fixed in place with the help of a threaded retaining cap. If there is one, use small pliers to remove it, and simply pull the cartridge out. Take a utility knife and cut old O-rings off. Apply some plumber's grease on the new O-ring and reassemble the whole faucet.
