How to clean K&N filter,without the kit?

Hi,I got my hands on great looking K&N,but its a little dirty...and now I cant find the cleaning kit in any of the stores...
Did anyone try cleaning it with something else..?
I know there is that moisture film on the filter for waterprofnes ect...
so I am afraid to use some standard degreeser or gasoline ...
If someone knows a bit more,and can help.. it would be apprecieted
PS.sory for my bad english speling

Re: How to clean K&N filter,without the kit?

i always used dish washing liquid.let it soak in the sink for a few min...then swish it around ..they say it cuts grease ..then rinse from inside out ...then.....id just flick it around to dry it off for a min or so then put back dry...thay have filter spray oil if it makes you feel better ... oil dont hurt thats for sure i just never bothered with it

order the kit online. in most places its $9.99 usd. it comes with instructions. spray cleaning solution, rinse good and let dry, and then oil the filter.

1) Get access to the filter
2) Remove filter
3) Look at filter
4) Toss filter in the trash.

Problem solved. You can get a recharge at almost any performance shop.

There are many methods for cleaning it. the most important part is to ensure that it is COMPLETELY dry. then LIGHTLY oil it.
