BMC air filter - which side is the dirty side?

firstly, i apologize for the noobish question...i am by no means even an amateur gearhead.
to make a long story short, this is my first time using a reusable air filter, i decided to wash it and give it a lube, i failed to remember which side was the dirty side that i would need to spray the lube on. i kind of have an idea, however, i think it would be wise to get some verification. rather not have any further headaches.

thanks.

The air comes in from the bottom (as it sits inside the filter panel in the car).

thanks for the reassurance, i kind of figure that the filter side facing the floor was the dirty side. i can finally get rid of the stock paper air filter.
