Can the Carbon Filter Be Washed?

Because carbon filters are able to absorb water, if you decide to wash it, you must ensure that it is only reused after it is completely dried. Being in a damp environment will cause it to grow mold. Washing the filter with water can only remove the dust in the carbon filter but we do not have experiments to verify whether it can remove the VOC absorbed. We do not recommend washing the carbon filter.
