Cleaning the chain?

I am sure this has threaded a zillion times, but I dont really care to go diving in the forum this early in the morning...sue me.

Anyone know a good way to clean a bike chain WITHOUT removing the wheel and such. Ive seen a couple of products in rags (mags) that look like a clip with brushes on the inside that allow you to attach it to the chain and turn the rear wheel while it cleans it...makes sense!?

I need some help here people!

I usually just buy a pack of terrycloths from walmart and wd40... cleans old chain wax right off... then I go for a ride and apply new chainwax.

That grundge brush is a waste of money. WD-40 and rags is the best.

^ i like using the grunge brush. i feel like it gets the nooks and cranies of my chain. a rag is fine but the brush gets inside the links better
