Your caulk is rusting?!?

Maybe a pic or further description would be a good idea.

Yow it happens.
Actually what is happening more than likely is the water has a high iron content. The water gets into (or sits on) the caulk and oxidizes as it dries after each use. Hence: "rusty caulk". It's a common issue in some areas.

OR put some "CLR" or equivalent in an old spray bottle, spray a bit and see what happens. It should remove the rust. Are there rust spots elsewhere that would suggest/confirm you have iron in your water? like the toilet?
