Is it safe to run a small amount of chlorinated water through it to get rid of any contaminants that may have formed while stored in the baggie?
Just add some Clorox to the water tank when you fill it and run it through the filter.
According to Clorox the "mix" for treating "clear" water is approximately 1/2 tsp per 6 gallons.
Forgetting to seal the bag is no worse than what many are doing with their inline "torpedo" filters, shaking them out and storing along with other fresh water gear in their storage compartments.
It's possible that not sealing the bag did you a favor and let the filter element dry. Not much grows in a dry element.
