When Colin Glasgow (Earl Owensby) digs up the body of his father in the graveyard to check his index finger the corpse appears to have a cloth covering its face. Does anyone know why?

Found this on a roots web page by Dawn Scott.

"According to one lady, a cloth was placed over the face of the dead person and a solution of soda and water was poured over the cloth to keep the face of the dead from darkening. She said they also use aspirin and water."
