Removing light white wash from beams

In the Santa Fe area many homes have Vigas beams and tongue and grove wood ceilings. Many of been whitewashed lightly and some heavily. I would like to restore the natural wood look of lightly whitewashed beams (real raw round tree beams). I've been told sandblasting may be the only way. Any ideas or suggestions? Sorry if this is a repeat question.

True whitewash will wash off with water. Try an inconspicuous spot to see if what you have is whitewash or if it is pickling stain which will require stripping.
