Cleaning AFE Filter

I have an afe intake and think I need to clean my filter, my question is this, can I get a cleaning kit from the local auto parts store that will do a good job cleaning it? My gas milage is getting terrible and from what little I can see of the filter it does look dirty.

I use the K&N filter recharger kit for my AFE dry synthetic filter. Use the filter cleaner but disregard the re-oiling bottle. Works great, spray it all over the filter, let it sit for 10 minutes, rinse and repeat until its clean. Usually takes two cycles. Rinse with tap water and let it air dry. It's available at the local autozone or checkers.

i just soak mine in a bucket with warm water/dish washing liquid mix. rinse until all soap trace is gone, and let dry. Just another way to skin a cat, and a little cheaper to boot.

Thanks Madcat, I did go ahead and buy the kit since I needed the oil but that's good to know that dish soap will work for cleaning.

I also checked my PCV to make sure it was not stuck - it's good, checked that air sensor before the throtle body and gave the throtle body a descent cleaning, I am getting well over 2 MPG more now. I don't quite have 27,000 miles on it so I'm not going to worry about the plugs for now. Just glad that the MPG has improved.
