Cleaning chain grease

I’m sure there are many recipes for this but try this one. After a careful chain lubing of course much slinging going on. 300 mm rear chrome wheel got the brunt. So I sprayed WD-40 on a cloth and wiped the wheel and other greased areas which came off easily, then took Griots spay on wash and wiped, presto. Super clean and shiny. Will likely need another waxing but super easy!! Let’s hear your recipe!!

Brake cleaner works good.
That stuff is tough on painted surfaces though!!
My go-to recipe for cleaning chain grease is to combine equal parts warm water and white vinegar in a bowl. Soak the chain in the solution for about 15 minutes, then scrub with an old toothbrush or stiff brush to remove any dirt and grime. Rinse the chain off with clean water and dry it completely before re-oiling it.
What’s your favorite chain lube?
