I am going to make some scented rag balls.....

..and I want to color the cloth that I will be using. I have this huge bag of old T-shirts...my husband's, and I want to use the fabric from those to make the balls. should I dye the was and the cloth? Should I just dye the cloth first then add plain wax? Also,should I go with just paraffin or would the left over beeswax / paraffin mix that I used for my first candle work ok? It seems like beeswax would be too hard to heat with a blow dryer to release more scent. I have some paraffin that isused for canning, which is what I mixed with the beeswax for my candle. I have even toyed with the idea of adding some mineral oil to sften the paraffin a bit more but am sorried that the rags would be oily and attract too much dirt. Suggestions please!!!!LOL
