After advice about chain maintenance, did what I thought was best and ended up with rusty and stiff chain :x

Gave my chain its first proper clean with one of the plastic cleaning boxes that fits over the chain and some solvent, lunricated it using White Lightning Wet lube, both times I've been out since have hosed bike down as normal, left it dry for a few days and the chain has gone rusty and stuff in places :x

Never had this problem before I cleaned it, just used to leave it and apply a small drop of general purpose lubricant from Decathlon every now and again, what can I do to stop it doing this, have I damaged my chain and is there anything else I should be doing to keep the chain in good condition???
