Whitewashing (Limewashing) & Milk paint
Above are two recipes. I have read over & over how whitewashing or using milk paint on buildings is a great way to preserve wood & keep the mites & lice issues down in coops & barns. It does need to be reapplied every so often, however.
Have you ever done this to any of your animal housing? What is your experience?
We have talked about this for the wooden sections of our coops and possibly in/on our little barn.
