if it's just the stock paper filter then just replace it. Any auto parts store will have it

How did you get water and mud on the stock filter?? Just spend the $10-15 and buy a new one.

Those filters aren't meant to be washed. They're a use and throw away item. If you try to wash them you'll degrade the filter material and it will no longer do its job properly.

Don't wash it.
Don't keep it for off-road.
Throw it away and get a new one.

Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.
