Default AEM not around anymore?

I have an AEM short ram intake for my '98 Civic. I've always gotten the AEM cleaning kit that has two bottles of cleaning solution. I went online to try and find it this week and I couldn't. One of the sites that did have it said that K&N bought out AEM and now K&N sells this spray bottle cleaning solution for AEM filters.

Has anyone used this? It seems to be a completely different cleaning technique.

Weird, I havent looked in the past few years, maybe they are bought out. But I know for the short rams they made two types of filters. One type you oil (red media), and the other type you dont. I have both, but run the one you dont oil.

Each type has its own cleaning solution. I wouldn't use the oil on the dry filter.

I use one of the Dryflow non-oiled filters and this stuff says it is okay to use on the Dryflow filters.

This is the stuff that I used to use.
