    Cleaning instructions for Foam Filter:

    1. Remove the foam filter and rinse it under a tap
    2. Carefully shake the water from the surface of the foam filter
      Note: Let the foam filter dry completely before you put it back into the vacuum cleaner

    Cleaning instructions for HEPA Dust Container Filter:

    1. Pull the latch of the HEPA dust container filter to open and remove it
    2. Rinse the pleated side of the HEPA dust container filter under a hot slow-running tap
    3. Hold the filter in such a way that the pleated side points upwards and the water flows parallel to the pleats
    4. Hold the filter at an angle so that the water washes away the dirt inside the pleats
    5. Turn the filter 180° and let the water flow along the pleats in the opposite direction
    6. Continue this process until the filter is clean
    7. Carefully shake the water from the surface of the HEPA dust container filter
      Note: Let the HEPA dust container filter dry completely before you put it back into the vacuum cleaner!

    Note: Never clean the HEPA dust container filter with a brush.
    Note: Cleaning does not restore the original colour of the filter, but does restore its filtration power.
