Submerged, its not a problem. Its the effect of any alcohol-based product on rubber or soft plastics.

As for lube, the more specific-based it is the better. BelAir is the stuff that Patrick sold me and I believe in it 100%. One can strong after lubing several bikes monthly and I still have some!

It is a white grease and doesn't fling like the oil-based chain oils I've tried before.

and I clean my chain as he showed me after I ate up the first one and a set of sprockets. WD40 on a rag, lightly cleaning all grime off and sprockets. Grease from the inside of the chain so centrifical force will pull it through, grease all outside extremities including sides. Clean off the excessive sprayed on areas.

Cycle Gear sells this Chain Clean spray, makes cleaning the chain so easy. Just spray it on and you can see all the dirt and grease just fall off.
