How do you make whitewash (for livestock dwellings, etc.)? Help! : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Preparation Forum : One Thread

I'm getting ready to do the fall cleaning of the chicken coop (my first time!) and one of the chores will be scaping/sanding the chipped & peeling paint off the walls (jeepers, even I knew you aren't supposed to use regular paint on interior walls... who did this, anyway? Grumble, scrape, gripe, scrape...)

What I need is for someone to tell me where whitewash comes from. I know, it's a stupid question, but I know my grandma used to make it up herself, from white powder & water. But what was the white powder? I tried to research on the web, but I got tons of pages about gov't & media whitewash, not the kind that you paint with.
