Halfrauds dry wax lube seems to do a good job though sometimes a wee bit of auto grease is all I use.

GT85 then a wipe with a towel, Sheldon brown said lube on the outside of the chain serves no other purpose than attracting dirt hence the wipe with a towel :)

After years of graphite based lubricant, including spray stuff, I find that a light application of 3-in-1 followed by a wipe of the chain still works far better.

Yep, you can't beat the old 3-in-1, just apply it sparingly.
