Filter Mistake

Out of ignorance, I rinsed my filter cartridge (which includes carbon) off in tap water.

So now it's filled with chlorine and all that horrible stuff, right?

Can I de-chlorinate/make it safe again? Maybe by using water conditioner somehow?

If so, how?!

It's not that bad. The most harm you could have done was killed most of the beneficial bacteria and lose your cycle. You can use it again immediately and the amount of chlorine tap water contains will evaporate or something if you air it out for a couple minutes.
