The problem with Depot and the like is they only seem to sell big 2-5 gallon bottles. Ace costed a little more, but they had a smaller bottle suitable for putting in a spray bottle and cleaning a chain.

RTFM, some bike manuals recommend against WD40 as it dries out the o-rings in the chain links. They recommend kerosene.

Make sure you get the odorless stuff.

Make sure to have a smoke while you clean it with the Kerosene. It helps relieve the stress.

You wanna see my itinerary?

What's wrong with a 2 gallon jug? Just use that shit liberally. It's probably the same price as a small tin anyways.
