- Take the tap off
- Using a screwdriver, attempt to push it up from underneath or try to spin it to unscrew it from the top.
- Next, take out the spring mechanism and inspect closely.
- Then unscrew the cap from the barrel. If it is brass, you can use bleach on it and that should fix it! If bot, your best option might be to replace it in the long run.

While you’re waiting for it to arrive, a cheap old basin plug will suffice.
