Put them in a baggy with some lube, close the baggie and mix it around.

Fill a shoe polish tin, or Altoids box, with a mix of venison tallow, and bear oil. Just enough bear oil neatsfoot oil, or any other animal oil, so the tallow isnít rock hard. Put the tin over the opening at the top of a candle lantern. When the grease liquifies dip the rough side of the wad in the oil ( less is more, so donít overdo it). Set them aside so the can harden up, and youíre ready to go. Saturated wads act just like a section of broomstick would when it passes through the shot pattern. Lightly greased wads break up, and donít blow your pattern.

I use bear oil or neatsfoot and punch out 3/8 felt in the size I"m shootin ,stuff a pill bottle (have lots of them) and pour enough to saturate
the wads . Never fails/Ed
