Always clean from the inside out. I use contact cleaner and low pressure air (do NOT stick the nozzle inside the filter).

Thanks for your reply Kent...found a little particle or two on the outside of the filter...that told me alot...used brake clean which comes out of the can fast enough to blow anything across the work bench and I was done...love that filter.
