Egg wash VS milk wash

Marieve | Aug 15, 2014 01:46 PM

When baking bread, pie and other pastries, some recipes call for an egg wash, others for brushing the top with milk. What are the differences in the finished baked good? Is there any other 'washes' used that I'm not aware of? If one ingredient is not available, can you substitute another wash in it's place?
