I've been thinking about losing the foam for a while now. (I didn't know you were supposed to change cartridge yearly.)
I didn't remove the foam. Originally, none of the Oasis line of humidifiers came with the foam. The foam was added, IMO, for 2 reasons. First, people were breaking them because they would splash water on the electronics when putting them into the humidor. That would fry the circuits and it would be a goner. Second, by selling the foam replacement cartridge, they have repeat buyers and a steady stream of income.

I think the best way to remove the foam would be to simply take a knife and start cutting and slicing it. It will break apart and eventually you'll get it all out.
