Answer: 
Do not wash this filter! Trying to wash it with water or any other liquid will only embed the dirt into it and weaken the structural integrity of the filter. The best way to clean it is dry with a stiff bristled nylon brush. Do it that way and it will last for years.

Answer: 
Since this is a paper filter I'm pretty sure you cannot wash it. I just blow mine out about once a month.

Answer: 
These aren't really made for washing, since they are paper. However, I remove them when I'm not using them. Then you can use a brush to scrape dust and dirt from between the ridges or just cover your face and eyes and whack it on the floor.
If you are using the filter as instructed, you shouldn't need to wash it, just dust it off.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 315 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simple fix for troublesome lawnmower Item is an air filter for Techumseh engine on a Toro lawnmower. 1. it was the right one 2. You had it in stock 3. The store was close by 4. It was a whole lot better than the one I took off (pictures below) Mower run perfectly after installing; life is great! July 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Filter Itwas easyto install and for a good price. It was recommended from a very friendly professional at home depot. October 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by An Excellent Product I bought this filter the first time about 8 years ago, and just today bought another to replace it. For those of you who don't know, it can be cleaned repeatedly with a stiff bristled brush and used over and over. You can extend its life even further by wrapping it with a (washable) foam pre-filter. Save yourself some dough by purchasing the foam filter media for as little as a buck, cutting it to size and loosely wrapping it around the pleated filter with rubber bands. October 3, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A great filter I've been giving my Shop Vac heavy use lately, vacuuming up lots of garden dirt and stones. I put in this new filter, but was afraid it would clog - but it didn't. It did an excellent job. I'm hoping it will continue to do well over time. September 27, 2016
