So have a few oil filters for the honda cars in their respective packaging, inside a box, where coolant was sitting on the box and it started to seep.

Which I learned today and noticed some of the packages were soaked in coolant - inside them filters were okay but some had droplets of coolant outside on the body.

Left them in the sun for sometime today and they are completely dry, are they safe to use or avoid them?

Thank you for the help and advise.

If coolant didn't fill the inside of the filter any then they are probably fine. The small amount of coolant remnants will dilute in whatever oil passes through it.

If coolant was only on the outside of the can, then they should be OK to use.
