I take it a pressure washer won't be too harsh on the filter.

Anyone used a dishwasher to clean (when the wifey's out...)

I've always cleaned them out with a pressure washer, and no matter how clean the water looks... keep going it holds the soot rather well, if you can use an airline to blow it through after, that would help get rid of the water which it also traps pretty well!
