Mary Marlowe Leverette, About.com Laundry & Laundry Rooms, says:

This is going to take a bit of work and patience because grease stains are difficult to remove from polyester after the garment has been washed and dried. You will need an enzyme-based stain remover: (Shout, Zout or Vaska Spotoff). Apply the product following package directions. Allow the remover to stay on the stain at least 15 minutes. Then wash following these instructions. Check for the stain. If it is still there, repeat the steps. DO NOT DRY until the stain is removed.

Good luck!
