Best thing I have found is to use "Brake Parts Cleaner" from auto parts store. Comes in a large spray can. Apply by spraying directly on chain in a bucket, wipe with rag, repeat. It evaporates off in 2 minutes with no residue on the chain. I would be careful spraying it while the chain is on the bike since it can corrode/damage plastic and paint. If you must do on the bike, just soak a rag with it and apply by hand. Believe me, I've tried LOTS of things to keep the chain clean (Including SimpleGreen. which didn't work well) and this is the cheapest, easiest, and most effective, IMHO.
