    We bought a house that has a drop-in bar sink which is no longer attached to the laminate countertop. Any advice would be appreciated on how to reattach it. Thanks!

    There may be some clips underneith (or places where they should be clipped to) that will hold it down. Clean the matingg surfaces of any debris and wipe down w/ denaturred alcohol and reattach/glue with silicone caulking. Caulk around the edge of the sink and countertop with a nice bead and let dry. Make sure the caulking you use is acceptable for laminate and stainless or porcelian or whatever the sink is.

    Good luck w/ the house
