Rinse it with gas then light it up with a match. The heat will burn off all the dirt and anything in/on the filter

Odorless Mineral spirits from Home Depot, it takes the oil out in seconds, does not ruin the foam like gasoline. then wash it with soap and water. You can reuse the spirits just filter it thorough a sock that you use in the shoe store to try shoes : ), or whatever you feel fits. 1/2 gallons is plenty!

You can just let the shit settle to the bottom. I use a coffee can and replace the can with the shit, save the solvent, every year or so.
