Give it a good rinse with cold water, then follow the recharge kit. It is hard to tell since it is a adark red to begin with but use your noodle and you'll get it.

No prob, it's easy. Use the cleaning spray from the kit and rinse it. Once it looks like its clean let it air dry and apply the oil.

Once you are done cleaning it per instructions let it dry, time depends on temp and humidity. Try to plan on it drying overnight, it should be a light gray color after cleaning and the follow instructions for the oiling of the filter.
