Filtering old wax

Sorry if this has been asked before, but I couldn't find it in a forum search...

Is there a wasy to re-melt old "used" wax and strain it through something to clean it up? I always make large 4" round pillars and I want to re-melt and re-poure the perfectly fine leftovers (FO is expensive!)...but sometimes there is carbon build up around the inside etc.....

Of course in re-melts a lot of junk falls to the bottom of the pot anyhow and I've just been careful to pour around it, but I thought I saw mentioned somewhere the wax can be "strained' or something...of course I could be completely wrong about this...

I remember this mentioned somewhere before but darn if I can find it...

I use an old pair of pantyhose to strain mine...LOL!! I just melt the wax, put one leg of the pantyhose over the pourpot, and pour the wax. It catches all of the little floaties that I sometimes get in my wax.

I believe you can also use cheesecloth for straining.
