Little help needed

I have some chemi pure elite being shipped right now, what I want to know is how I should clean this stuff before I use it.

Should I rinse it (under running tap)?, soak it? Squeeze it? Or what??

the way i rinse it is just by filling up a bucket of tap water and sway it a little. repeat a couple of times and run it through the tap water for couple of sec to make sure the water comes out clear. and don't squeeze it.

i dont think tapwater is that poisoning. Its good enough for the humans... im sure its good enough to rinse the carbon. you just don't want to run too much water ( any water ) through it.

Tap is fine, there's nothing to harm.

So I just put hold it under the tap and let the water run over it? For how long a minute?
