Leading question ....
Will depend on where and when.

... but modern day the beteljuice believes it is a combination of

a/ 'memory', lime wash was discovered in most parts of the world as a flexible sealant and has anti-bacterial properties.

b/ In tropical / temperate climates 'reflects' the heat of the Sun giving a cooler environment.
Imagine what you will KNOW tomorrow

@beteljuice well I have learnt something today. After reading what you wrote I googled it. Yep it reflects the heat away making the home cooler.

I had come up with this. I have a black van and I have a white car.
The black shows every dirty spot while the white does not.
The van is black inside also and I am forever vacuuming it. Remind me to stay away from black next time :)
