Nitrile gloves (blue)
White silicone tube
Mrs. Angelfish had the largest aquarium on the block. According to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia the Fresh Water Angelfish is scientifically named Pterophyllum scalare. Her aquarium was filled with many varieties, such as the Altum Angelfish or Deep Angelfish, teardrop angelfish, leopold's angelfish, dwarf angelfish, or Roman-nosed angelfish. For more information on fresh water angelfish please click the scientific name above. Mrs. Angelfish is an environmentalist so when she purchased s used sink, she had a plumber replace the faucet. What she needed was someone to caulk her sink.
This post shows the six steps on how to caulk a used bathroom sink.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows a caulking gun. Place a new silicone tube into the caulking gun. Fig.2 shows the silicone tubes available at your local hardware store.

Step 3: Fig.4 below shows that there are gaps in the caulking. To fix this the caulking tube tip needs to be moved around the entire perimeter of the sink thus filling the gaps.
Step 4: Next push the silicone with your fingers into the cracks thus sealing the area.
Note: Use white silicone instead of latex caulking because it lasts longer and will not crack like latex caulking. It is much harder to use the silicone caulking than latex but the overall effect is better for areas that are used everyday.
