cleaning air filter on perkins 401-8

I have a morgan 37 oi. I have a mushroom shaped air filter. On the inside it is like a screen material with very small holes. There is no paper or foam filter just the screen. What is the proper way to clean this? Someone told me to sand blast it or soak it in solvent but those dont seem right to me. How much sand blasting could it take and if soaked in solvent like i did one year i had to repaint it. Is this really the proper way to do this?
