    My chains don't go black and my chains are lubed. Not a square circle.

    What's this black magic you're resorting to? I could achieve this with a new chain every week or so.

    Or by cleaning very regularly and/or use dry lube.

    But I have a life, use my bike twice a day in all weathers and dry lube doesn't work well as a lubricant. Unless you re-lube every 100km.

    I bought a 5 litre pack of concentrated citrus degreaser from Screwfix. Will last for ever. Think it only cost me s tenner or so.

    This. Either neat or diluted by a third. Best degreaser I've found and it's cheap. Also removes grease from clothes incl bike stuff. Apply to stain then wash

    same here, great stuff.

    Remove chain then attach each end to earth and electrode of an arc welder. This will burn off all the old grease.
