Have you done it yet? Once you do the work to completely degrease the drivetrain, it's easy as pie maintaining and doing a re-wax. I just did my first re-wax two days ago. Poured boiling water over the chain, dried it, and put it in the crock pot while I was cleaning my bike, pausing to do an occasional stir - using PTFE powder (granted I didn't have much to clean because there was no grease, mainly road residue from the frame). After wiping down the bike, I pulled the chain out, wiped the sides, broke the links and mounted it.
