CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — We feature Mark’s Cleaners in our We're Open report today.
Mark's Cleaners has five locations across the city. Owner Mark Arnold has been in the business for 35 years after buying out J.R. Viola Cleaners four years ago.
Arnold has added a much stronger bacteria soap to all of his washings in his aim to fight the COVID-19 pandemic at no charge for all of his customers.
“We have started adding peracetic acid, free of charge, we don’t up charge for it," Arnold said. "They use it in nursing homes and hospitals.
"It kills all your blood-borne pathogens. It’s just a stronger bacterial soap. My soap company recommended it so we have added it to every load.”
His production is down nearly 80 percent, but still wants to help all senior citizens.
