White Lightning Wax with Hebie Chainglider in place of fullchaincase?



Gentlemen:

I use White Lightning Self Clean Wax preparation as chain lube. It
works by the wax enveloping any foreign specks of matter in a little
ball of wax that then drops off.

Now I want to change the full chain case on my bike for a Hebie
Chainglider, which closely envelops the chain and is supported only by
the chain, i.e. it "rides" on the chain.

The question is, will the dirt and rubbish dropping off in little
balls of wax now simply be fed back into the chain because the Hebie
Chainglider fits so closely? Should I look for another "dry" lube, say
teflon? Am I right to think any wet lube will also simply recycle
rubbish back into the chain from contact with the inside of the Hebie
Chainglider.

I like the idea of the Chainglider for aesthetics and a weight saving
over a full chaincase, and because it will be less noisy. The very
slight boominess of the chaincase on my two Dutch city bikes with hub
gears disturbs because they are otherwise utterly silent.

TIA.
