I'd soak it in sanitizer from the pharmacy for a few minutes and scrub it off with a toothbrush.

The main reason for the application of primer is that the next layer of paint has a surface to stick on. So if you use an airbrush, you could just add a few thin coats of white paint. However, if you don't use an airbrush, I would add a layer of white primer (and perhaps another layer of normal white paint) - mainly because this layer will be much thinner than a few layers applied with a normal brush (and you WILL need multiple layers of white paint over black primer).

Yeah, that's also a good idea.
