I was hoping I'd find a wax that'd work well but the better lubricating ones attract lots of dirt like oil and also gunk up chainrings / sprockets. I tried the water-based 'Squirt' and found it to be complete rubbish; a congealing, non-lubricating mess.
The nice thing about wiping oil off the chain with a brompton is that you can do it in 'parked' mode, i.e. just backpedal whilst pushing a rag against the chain, without the need for a stand.
I quite like the Finish Line wet lube but yes, any oil will do.
