black powdery stuff under kitchen sink

We are seeing a dark powdery stuff at the edge of kitchen sink between the sink and counter top. It is reappearing in about 24 hours after cleaning. We have laminated counter top that is about 14 years old.
Any suggestion to clear this problem is greatly apprecited.
Thanks
Ravij

Could be mold and mildew. If so, disinfect area with bleach/water solution. Also, inspect beneath counter where sink is clipped to counter and treat with bleach/water solution if there is evidence of mold/mildew.
