Yes, both the red, and the new, green, No-Toil filter oils can only be cleaned with the No-Toil cleaner; normal soap will not dissolve the No-Toil filter oil, and neither will harsh solvents. However, the active ingredient in the No-Toil cleaner is sodium percarbonate, which is the same active ingredient in Oxi-Clean and all the other so-called "oxygen" cleaners. These cleaners are inexpensive, and are readily available at Home Depot, Lowes, Staples, Office Depot, WalMart, KMart, and almost every grocery store.

The cleaning solution for your No-Toil filter oil consists of 1-gallon of warm water and 2 ounces of Oxi-Clean/sodium percarbonate. If you brought half a 16-ounce bottle, you have enough No-Toil cleaner to clean 4 air filters. However, you don't need to buy more of the No-Toil cleaner, since you should be able to find "oxygen cleaner" in all the large grocery stores throughout Latin America. Here in the United States, one can easily find sodium percarbonate cleaners for $1/pound; don't spend 8$/pound for the brand name, No-Toil cleaner.
