Wildlife rescue workers in Florida have discovered that a common sandwich ingredient is perfect for cleaning toxic crude from the skin of oiled sea turtles. Can you guess which one? It’s not mustard. Not salsa. I’ll give you a hint: It rhymes with mayonnaise!

Beth Buczynski over at Crisp Green will tell you all about it: Common Condiment Helps Save Gulf Sea Turtles.
