WD-40 can't be really worse than kerosene for cleaning.
I never soak the chain, I just soak a rag and wipe the chain with it. Once it's clean, I apply 80w90 gear oil.
In between the cleanings, I use Dupont Teflon chain saver.
Since I'm going this, I've never had to ajust or replace the chain. When I used the Motul chain lube, I had to replace the chain every 20 000 km.
