I'll add my two cents, since this is so clever and saves a ton of money by reusing cleaned filters...great idea!

Neat! Though as a finishing touch, I would still blast that filter inside out with compressed air.

Neat idea! Literally. I usually clean the filters outside with compressed air. Clearly, this approach has a lot of advantages.
