Okay guys and gals, let me start by saying THIS IS CHEATING.
You CANNOT rely on this method exclusively to eliminate pops. And it doesn't work all the time.
Mostly it's for those short "Woof"-y pops at the beginning of words when your mouth is too close to the pop filter.
That said, sometimes you've recorded a lot of audio, and you're cleaning it, and you're not anywhere near a sound booth to re-record. This could save your bacon once or twice as long as you don't come to rely on it as a staple of your everyday recording.
Step 1: Highlight ONLY THE SECTION of the audio that has the plosive. If it's in a long sentence, highlight up to the first break in the words. Ideally you should have no more than a half-second to a second selected.
Step 2: Roll off the EQ from 0 to -6 from 100hZ to 80 hZ, respectively. (See picture.) Then roll from -6 to -30+ from 80hZ to 60hZ. (Also in picture)
You'll want to be VERY careful with this if you're a bass/contrabass/basso profundo. It's in your voice range. And even if you have a high, piping voice, this will strip bass out and make it sound thin which is why you ONLY WANT TO DO IT for the area of the pop, and NOT the whole file, unless you're TRYING to sound like you are on a walkie-talkie (ask your parents, kids.)
