If you don't have a chain cleaner then i would get a rag and wrap it around the chain and spin your cranks backwards while holding the rag and then if you want take a screw driver and you can scrape off the old grease and junk off your driver and sprocket and then re-lube your chain.

The only hard part is getting your back wheel back in the right spot if you take the chain off to clean the diver but that takes like a minuet if you know how to do it right.
Edit WD 40 probably would work since its a degreaser but I've never tried it

The rag thing is the best way. Just do that, fuck scraping anything.

I seek progression, not perfection.

Plus if you did the rag thing then it would take like literally 2 minuets maybe less.

I cleaned mine before by soaking it in WD40 for awhile then scrubbing it with an old tooth brush. Make sure to lube it up afterwards then.

gasoline but be sure to put fresh grease

when it gets really, beyond the point of wiping off, a dip in a degreaser or acetone when i dont have simple green and an old toothbrush handy

ALWAYS RE GREASE YOUR CHAIN AFTER CLEANING IT
because you will also be taking away the lubricant

I oil my chain then grease it, as it keeps the oil on.

Take your chain off, clean it with simple green or wd40. Put your chain back on, drip some oil on your chain/sprocket, then spin your cranks a few times.
