Is the fabric totally 100 percent polyester? If so, I've heard that white toothpaste. The regular, old white paste kind, NOT the gel kind, will remove stains. But: the fabric has to be completely polyester, any other kind of fabric (cotton, spandex, nylon, whatever) in the item and the toothpaste won't work and might damage the item.

Also, as a last resort and if the item is washable in warm or hot water, try this: hold the item over a sink or bathtub and pour boiling water on the stained part. Item must be washable in warm or hot water, though; otherwise, the boiling water would probably ruin it (and possibly might anyway, that's why I call this the last resort). Good luck!
