    White wash / Skimming

    I've just been to look at a job that's papered but I've been told that the ceiling has a lime / white wash on it. The paper on the ceiling has started to come away probably due to this. Once the paper is off and before I skim it what's it best to wash it off with before hand ?

    I thought it was some kind of kind of bonding mixed with plaster due to the pink color (Can't see it from photo) But was not sure in 1970s what was about so I've took a sample to take on site to an old boy I know see what he knows..

    What is this,?

    Been to a job today and it was built 1970 ish. The walls are covered in this it's pink looking and very soft and chalky and some sparkle in it. I don't know if it's some lime render of some sort mixed wrong as I think it was a plumber that owned the house, so I guess he done the work himself...
