Kitchen Sink

Okay...this is probably going to sound silly but right after my last baby was born my sink drain started leaking and eventually the drain thing just came off. The thread is ruined and the drain just needs to be replaced!! I'm pretty sure this is all very simple but I am having problems unscrewing the thing that holds the sink in plance. It is on REALLY tight! I wasn't sure if there was something I could use to make this easier. I just haven't been using the one side of the sink for a few months now and since I am finally getting some free time I figure I better get it done! If anyone knows how I might go about doing this please please let me know!!

We need a bit of help with the terminology in order to help you. A picture would help immensely, so we can see what you're describing. Then it'll be a lot easier to talk you through it.

If you are using only one side of the sink they sounds like the tail piece off the strainer basket may be what you are talking about.

Not to sound sour but you are using the righty tighty and lefty loosey..Yes?

Sometimes the connection for the tail piece is so far gone you may have to replace the entire strainer basket..

Please post picture to help, you do not have to take the sink out to fix a drain problem. should be a easy fix of about 10 minutes.
