Is it okay to apply kiln wash to the lid of my glass kiln?

Please do not apply kiln wash to the lid. Kiln Wash protects the firebrick bottom and shelves from melted glass. When the melted glass is removed from a shelf, the kiln wash comes off with it. Since the kiln wash is designed to flake off, it can fall into the glass below when coated onto a lid. You can use liquid kiln coating to protect the lid surface. Applied in a thin coat, kiln coating seals the pores and hardens the surface of the firebricks. This helps in preventing loose particles from falling. Kiln coating is an entirely different product from kiln wash, though in liquid form they look the same.
