    hi the black spots are fungus that accumulates between the bath tub, sealant and the wall. just apply a bleach and clean with a hard tile brush that you get. it should go.....

    Hi,

    I think the black spots are mold........I useually get it in my bathroom. So I use TILEX mold remover to remove them. This product is strong.....if u are a sensitive persons to chemicals then don't use this.

    Otherwise it is a good one to handle mold....just spray and walk away.

    They are Mildew...I had an ugly bathroom but its now sparkly clean after I used TILEX mildew deep root cleaner..It never apperaed again...but be careful if u have kids since the vapors are very strong...

    I dont know if you would get the same brand but you can check it out...

    The white stuff between tiles is a kind of sealent I think and not cement,,,,


    Hope this helps...

    hi shravanthika,

    Two types of sealant are used. there is this glue like stuff,which when given too much pressure just can peeledoff. the other is white cement....

    Thank you all ladies for ur replies. I will research for Tilex in the market. The sealant appears to be rubber/plastic kind of material. So can i use Tilex in that?

    Hi renuka,
    I have the same type of sealent in my home and nothing happened when I used it other than the irritating vapors.
    I advise u to wear gloves.It works really well...even I used on the bath tub...worked fine for me.

    Shanvy,
    Thanks for the info...
