Chain Cleaner from Aldi

I never use to know that cleaning a chain was a thing
OK - I did wipe it with an oily rag every now and again and then lob some 3-in-1 over it but the chain worked fine for 30 years of casual cycling

Thanks to the WWW and better info I know have a chain cleaner - and fill it with meths and run the chain through it
I should probably get some other solvent but I have the meths because of my Mamod traction engine - so I used it

so I can see a visit to the LBS and asking about the right cleaner and lube to use (note to mod - I not posting any dodgy comments - other may differ!!!!!)
after all they probably under charge me for some stuff they fix so getting it cheaper off Amazon or Halfrauds is a bit cheaky

I just saw what seems a good idea to scrub your chain on YouTube. Get two nail brushes and sandwich the chain in between them and spin the peddles backwards 🤔
