Degreasing chain after after wet ride?

I commute 26 miles to work each day working shifts so coming & going at all times of the day. What is the best way to maintain the chain?

I currently degrease and use wet-lube once a week at the moment but my chain and cassette still get a few rust marks on them. I dont want to degrease after each ride especially at 4am!

Any ideas?

Thanks for your time

    A quick spray of a water dispersant like WD40 or something similar.

    Don't degrease so often - run the chain through a rag weekly by all means but degreasing is overkill unless it gets particularly grubby.
    Carlsberg don't make cycle clothing, but if they did it would probably still not be as good as Assos
