What is the best method for melting down and filtering "raw" bees wax?

I don't mean for just a handful, I will have a wheel barrows worth. Some is pretty clean already, other is really dark (not sure if grimy or from darker wax)

My dad was a bee keeper and we have located his "stash" in the garage.

I should mention, he had filtered it once, these are "bricks" but it looks pretty impure and we want to package up and hopefully sell most of it.

I have not done any of our beeswax yet, but I have been told the best method is the double boiler and then strained through cheesecloth to remove the impurities.
