I do the same thing. Some say to dilute the Simple Green but I don't. I just spray it on, let it sit a little, take a car wheel cleaning brush and go all over the cassette, chainrings and spin the chain while brushing it back and forth. I then gently hose off the residue, wipe down the bike, let it dry a bit, then apply the chain lube. I have used that method on steel, aluminum and CF bikes and the paint is still on and colorful.
Now about the paint on my Cannondale's head tube, that is all blistering off, that's another story due to me breathing fire while in the drops.
