Default What are the best/shortcut ways to stop water wastage at taps due to leak?

I see number of public water outlets where the tap is broken/screwed and the water is continuously been wasted. What can I do to stop the flow temporarily? Considering that I can't apply any permanent solution.

Insert faucet into a tight fitting orifice. Some leakage is acceptable.
