Microwave Filter Cleaning Instructions
The recommended method for cleaning your filter material is to bake it with moist heat at 150°. If you don’t have an oven that can reliably sustain a temperature that low, it may be possible to decontaminate the filter in your microwave.
There are no official guidelines, but some studies indicate that placing the filter material in your microwave alongside (not in!) a bowl of water for 45 seconds may have the same sanitizing effect as baking it.
