what cauken can be used that want mildew in the tub? I don't know if that is spelled right but the upstairs bathroom continues to get mildew between the tiles. The downstairs bathroom has not mildewed yet and they have the same materials in them. THANK YOU, SHERMAN EURY

If you are referring to the grout between the tiles, there is a sealant available at the box stores to protect new grout from mildewing. If the old grout can be cleaned, you might be able to seal it successfully. Otherwise, replacing the top layer of grout would give you a new surface to seal.

If you mean the caulk at the corners or where the tile meets the tub, siliconized acrylic latex caulk will do a good job.

For the most part, mildew is a result of inadequate exhausting of moisture from the bath. An adequate fan run during a shower preferably, and ten minutes afterward should keep the moisture to a minimum.
