Oiled sponge type? You didn't say....
Rinse it in diesel fuel or kerosene, ring it out good & let it dry. Add a small amount of oil to the filter, squish it around to distribute the oil evenly & yer done.

Re: what is the best way

if it is a sponge type , I use solvent from my parts washer, rinse from inside out then after all the oil and grit is washed out I bring it in the house and use dishwashing soap (dawn) on them , wash all the solvent out then rinse, and let dry for a couple hours (or blow dry with compressed air when in a hurry) then oil with airfilter oil, a little goes a long way if you work it in hard enough

Re: what is the best way

Hope your not jumpin' on me!
ALL of my waiste oil/fluids & solvents get saved up and I take them to work when the pail is full to burn in their used oil furnace.
I would NEVER just dump it!
You never know what nature is all about 'till you live in it for a few(many)years.

Re: what is the best way

This is the only world we have to live in for now.
Living up here in the middle of nowhere is beyond belief.
You can drink the water right from ANY lake or stream here and I would like to keep it that way.
I lied a bit about ALL my fluids being burned though... I use my used tranny fluid in my chainsaw too.
