I use WD-40 or Motorex chain cleaner.

If I'm REALLY washing the bike, I'll use Zep's Purple Degreaser on the chain- takes ALL the off. Followed my Motorex and chain lube.

I been using wd40 and nothing else for longer than most of your parents have known each other.
It is petroleum based (as is the grease in the links).
Which leads us to...
Why are you lubing your chain?
oring chains have lube made into each link and the rings keep it in there. Just like they keep the lube out.
The only concerns are keeping the chain clean and protected from rust.
Wd40 will do both. It just doesn't last as well as some of the stickier chain lubes.
For cleaning... WD40 is easy.

o ring chains are not self lubricating. they have o rings to help keep lube on longer and keep chain noise down. still have to be maintained like any other moving product on the planet
