NOTE: This filter is made of high quality
paper designed to stop very small parti-
cles of dust. The filter can be used for
small amounts of liquid pick up or dry
pick up. Handle the filter carefully when
removing to clean or installing it. Creases
in the filter pleats may occur from installa-
tion but creases will not affect the per-
formance of the filter.
Your filter should be cleaned often to
maintain peak vac performance.
Be sure to dry the filter before storing or
picking up dry debris.
IMPORTANT: After cleaning, check the
filter for tears or small holes. Do not use
a filter with holes or tears in it. Even a
small hole can cause a lot of dust to
come out of your vac. Replace it
