What I remember of cotton waste was prominently white with different coloured strands, and you had to pull it apart we used it to pack tractor air filters.

I have a tin which contains graphite impregnated cotton wasnít, The instructions on the tin say it is for gland packing eg valves and taps. I use it on the water glass taps on my engine.

A reasonably good source of old rags is 'freecycle'. It's a website where people offer or want items. I've often put a call out for any old towels / bed linen / quilts / curtains. I must have four bin bags of cleaning rags in the garage attic at the moment.
