Anyone use Dupont Chain degreaser and wax?

I went to Walmart to buy some WD40 chain wax and it's not an "in store" item, so I bought two items
Dupont chain & sprocket degreaser and Dupont Chain-Saver wax based chain lube.

So, I've never used an actual cleaner on my chain. I just use a brush, rag add some oil, wipe it off, then add more oil and I'm done.

Q1. How do you use this?

I have the rear stand for oiling and adjusting, so I put it on the stand, rotate the chain while spraying, then wipe off then I can apply the wax?

Q2. Wouldn't the left over degreaser ruin the wax?

How aggressive do I have to be in removing the degreaser to make sure enough is off to not harm the fresh wax?

I'll make an attempt to save you money. Kerosene is about $10/gal, and is suggested for cleaning chains. It's o-ring friendly. Skip the brush on anything but faceplates. Nylon brushes tear up o-rings, o-rings are what keep the lubrication in the chain. Left over degreaser will thin the wax, but should dry somewhat quickly if it is a decent product. I cannot speak to the wd40, but the wax products I have used made it easy to tell how well it was holding in place, nice patina of sticky brown/orange wax on the chain when done.

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided
