I wrote to Wynn a couple of months ago, asking them about cleaning my 35A. Dick Wynn wrote me back with this…

“Your 35A Blend filter can not be washed so you should hit it with up to 80 psi of compressed air and tap on the end cap at the same time and see what you get. You could even try a toilet brush from the inside if the above does not work. If you had a spun Bond filter, here is how I would have advised you.

“We would prefer that you do not wash it but if you do, use a garden hose and hit it from the “outside” to force everything inward.. If clumps of caked dust persist, you could go in there with something like a toilet brush at the same time.

“Be certain to blow it COMPLETELY dry and let it sit for a day or two to be certain that it “is” dry.

“In the future, you can blow it down with up to 100 psi of compressed air and if the clumps are stubborn, tap on the end cap at the same time with a small plastic mallet.”


So, I’ve been using compressed air from the outside, and its been working fine.
