    I am trying to get away from a water rinse while trying to get a nice clean chain.
    Here is what i do: remove the chain, drop it into a tupperware container with a couple ounces of citrus based solvent. Shake, but not stirred. Repeat with clean solvent.
    Dry the chain using compressed air , dip in white lighting and hang to dry, then wipe until clean to touch.
    Filter the solvent using a coffee filter back into containers marked 1,and 2 .

    so a couple of questions:
    Anyone found a better solvent for wax based lubes?
    Dry lubes really seem to work well in dry condtions , what non-wax based lubes are recommended?

    thanks
    michael

    I have been very pleased with Dumonde Tech Lite.
    Make sure the chain is very clean before application and wipe off all the excess. When that is done, it is a very clean lube.
