Answer: 
No, and it is not recommended. I believe you would need to use the VF3700 for wet applications. The VF3500 can be washed, but must be dried thoroughly before being used again. That is why I have at least two on hand.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 93 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This filter handles everything I pick up with my Ridgid wet/dry vac including fine drywall dust and other powdery material. It does this without any dust escaping - a real plus when you are renovating a house and trying to keep things as clean as possible. You can easily clean it and it's quite durable. October 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Have been using these filters for over 15 years. I never had a problem with them and you can clean the dust out by blowing it out with your compressor. That will save you some extra cash. October 25, 2016

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by shop vacumme filter It works as it should. Filters particulate from vacuuming, easy to install September 27, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by could be better Filter does well sucking up dust. However the "Qwiklock" assembly is a big disappointment. You get filthy removing the dirty filter. Bring back the thumbscrew and filter plate. August 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by New vacuum filter The new filter has allowed my vacuum to work more efficiently. I recommend changing it often to keep your vacuum working at its best. August 16, 2016
