You can use K&N filter cleaner or a hose to clean the filter (off the car, of course)
and then K&N filter oil to re-oil the filter. Make sure not to over-oil the filter
You should be able to get the K&N filter cleaner pack from most autoparts stores, or speedshops.
If you have excess oil dripping blow it slightly...but be careful to make sure all of the filter is red...And Yes that oil can be dangerous if it leaks into the intake piping, MAF, or farther...so be careful...let it dry over night if you have to...
