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.

If you do it properly it will be this color after you spray the oil on it. dont go crazy with the oil either you could damage your mafs.
