    How to remove old style slotted tailpiece nut?

    This is under a bathroom sink and is too thin to grab with my basin wrench, and too close to the edge as well. I also tried tapping one of the slots with a long screwdriver and hammer. Is there a special tool or workaround for this? Photo enclosed. Thanks!

    Problem with smelly sinks

    Hello, We have an odor in our master bath that's like old gym clothes. It seems to come from the two sinks. When the bathroom is closed up, it takes a few hours for the odor to build up, and it gets worse when the weather is cool and damp. I've flushed the overflow and the drain with chlorine...
