Washing Machine Lint Filter?

What is the best way to clean a washing machine lint filter like the type in the photo below? The lint clogs the tiny holes, but is not easily removed by hand. It's not in big enough clumps that I can pick it off. I can really only tell that all the holes are clogged when I take the filter outside in daylight. Then it is easy to see.

In order to clean it, I have been letting the filter dry and then brushing it briskly - inside and out - with a stiff brush. I do it outside in the yard because the lint flies. Is there a better way?
