I use White Lightning or Finish Line Speed Degreaser interchangeably.
When cleaning the chain I spray section, scrub with a small brush, spray again, and wipe down.
One of the advantages to using a solvent like White Lightning, is that it will evaporate on it's own.
Make sure the chain is all the way dry before applying lube.
Be careful with this product though, it's pretty harsh and "might" ruin some rubber/plastic parts and finishes.
For something less harsh, you can try Finish Line Multi Degreaser.
Finish Line, and Park Tool (and others) have a neat little chain cleaning kit that does a pretty good job. It is a plastic container with roller brushes that you fill with solvent and close around the chain. When you pedal backward the the brushes get in between every link and the solvent doesn't spill (mostly).
Riding a bike is FUN!
The treadmill is NOT!
Never argue with idiots... They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
