I suggest using a power link so it’s easy to remove the chain. You can then clean & lube the chain by any number of methods.
My usual method is to put about a cup of gasoline in a quart glass jar and put the chain in and swish it around for a minute or two. This does a great job of cleaning the gunk off, with the only down side of what to do with the dirty gas. I have a backyard fire-pit and use the gas as a fire starter (just watch those eyebrows). Of course you could probably use a more environmentally friendly citrus fluid and do the same thing.
I’d stick with the gasoline/kerosene/wd-40 approach. Citrus might work… but it will take longer, and will possibly etch the chain and cause pitting corrosion if soaked too long; this could be detrimental to an already thin 10speed chain although it might be safe on a thicker chain.
Of course, doing a citrus/vinegar soak once or twice probably won’t hurt. We used to use lemon kool-aid mixed into a paste to clean some of the steam-traps when I was in the Navy. It would be easier to just pick up some naval-jelly at the hardware store for this purpose (phosphoric acid). But again, playing with acids is likely more abrasive than you would want.
I put chains/cassettes in a plastic bag, some hot water, and a splash of Simple Green. 10 minutes later rinse, and it’s nearly spotless. Re-lube chains right after to eliminate the possibility of rust.
Seriously lifechanging for my bike maintenance. No aggravating scrubbing, getting grease stains on your walls, etc.
i use a Park Chain scrubber cleaning tool.
its pretty nice, clamp it around the chain, spin pedals for a few minutes & it scrubs the chain clean. dry off excess moisture then lube the chain afterwards.
it comes with a bio-degreaser, but you can get the same results with a few drops of liquid dish soap.
most bike shops have them. around $25 for the unit, $35 for the kit that comes with a larger bottle of degreaser & a small brush.
That one, maybe up to a 44t? It’s made to fit CDs and DVDs, so that’s the largest item you can fit in. You can stick it in hanging out the top, rotate it, and clean the other half though. For a larger one, you’re looking at at least 100 bucks if not more.
