You can pick up a wheel bearing packer at most auto parts stores for 10-15 bucks.

Two wheel drive or four wheel drive car?

Or you can do it the old fashioned way and work the grease in by working it in with the palm of your hand.

do I have to clean the old grease out of the bearings first or just pack some new grease in by hand?

Wipe off whatever old grease you can. I your using the packer it will force the old grease out. Dont use any degreasing solutions to clean it.
