    Red Zone

    Does anybody use Red Zone on red stains ? I've never tried it. Been using red relief. Is red zone just 1 part and not a part A and a part B ? Does it really remove red stain without using heat transfer (iron and white towel ) ? Thanks Sent from my iPhone using TMF Forums mobile app
