silicone caulk

I bought a house that has a kitchen sink that has never been caulke around the frame that sits on the counter. I have sprayed Clorox water, scraped, sprayed and scraped several times. I am concerned about mold and/or germs growing under the lip of the sink. Do you think it is safe to now caulk it with silicone caulk. Again, it has never been caulked, but I jsut don't know how much I am supposed to clean it before it is safe to caulk it.
please help

silicone caulk

If there is no warping of the countertop around the sink, I'd caulk it and move on to the next project.

Good luck!

silicone caulk

ok, but it the sink edge had alot of brown "gunk" under it. I think it's pretty clean now, so will proceed. I was concerned about trapping mold under it. thanks
