this is a job for www.haventyoueverheardofGoogle.com
. Search for something like "Remove grease stains polyester" or whatever the fabric is and follow the instructions.
Some things you may find:
DON'T put the jersey in a dryer until the stain is gone. You'll set it permanently. It may be permanent anyway, and to me that's OK. A jersey is a piece of athletic clothing--it's going to be worn and get dirty. Doesn't bother me.
Try something like Spray n Wash or Shout, but let it stand longer than the directions say, overnight if necessary (spot test first if you're worried about fade).
Make a paste of laundry detergent and water, work it into the stain with a brush and let stand as above. Keep the paste moist--it quits working when it dries out.
Spray it with a solvent (paint thinner? Simple Green? Whatever you clean parts with), let stand, then launder.
Rub in a dollop of hand cleaner, like GOJO or something from the car parts place. Wait, wash.
I've had good luck with WD40 taking out grease stains. Spray, wait, wash with detergent and the hottest water the fabric will take.
I don't know about those stain removal sticks (Tide makes one, and there are others). Never tried them, My wife says they're good.
