Not mildew: If this is a persistent problem, you may want to get it checked out especially for fat malabsorption (Celiac disease etc) when the stool floats.

Why does a patient having hepatic jaundice would pass clay colored stools when his urine is dark colored and his body produces urobilinogen?
Bilirubin: Bilirubin is a yellow breakdown of hemoglobin from old red blood cells.
