Having issues rendering wax

Hey y'all, I was gifted some old hive boxes I'm restoring but the brood wax is incredibly dark and I'd prefer to not reuse. My question really is, how long do I need to boil this stuff to render the wax out? I've tried a few times, usually doing 6 frames of the dark honeycomb at a time in water and not getting more than a sliver of wax out. I've tried cheesecloth e, I've tried a strainer…give me your wax ideas cause at this rate I'm just going to throw the old comb out and buy wax
