K&N sells the oil and cleaner for your filter. Go to any local auto parts store they will have it. Runs about 10-12bucks for the kit...looks just like the stuff post above ^^

well I clean my CAI filter every time I do a oil change b/c I don;t have a fender well cover that shields my filter from all crap on the road and the air. I use to clean mine every 2 oil changes at 6,000 miles..now I do it every 3k when i cahnge my oil

straight from the AEM website

Q: How long will a DRYFLOW filter last?
A: If you clean and maintain your DRYFLOW filter, it will last for the life of your vehicle.

Q: How often should I clean the DRYFLOW filter?
A: Frequency of cleaning for your DRYFLOW filter will depend on the conditions in which you drive. As a rule, we recommend that you clean your filter a minimum of every 30,000 miles, inspect it during oil changes and regular service intervals, and clean it if it appears to be reaching its dust holding capacity. If you live in particularly arid, dusty climates or venture off road, we recommend cleaning the filter every 3,000-5,000 miles.

Q: Will frequent cleanings affect the DRYFLOW filter's longevity?
A: No. The DRYFLOW filterís polyester synthetic media can endure repeated cleanings without significantly degrading the mediaís filtration capabilities. If you clean and maintain it properly it will last for the life of your vehicle.

Q: Can I use a different type of cleaning solution on my DRYFLOW filter?
A: To ensure optimum performance and filtering capabilities, use AEMís Filter Cleaning Solution (part number 21-110) or a mild multi purpose cleaner and follow our cleaning instructions.

Do NOT oil a DryFlow filter!

I clean mine at every (synthetic) oil change (about 4000-5000 miles).
