I personally wouldn't use anything stronger than simple green. Even that can do bad stuff with certain types of metal.

dawn dish soap... or just clean your bike often enough so you don't need it.

Wd-40 on a rag works pretty good too for heavy chain crap.

I clean my rear wheel every 2 rides so there's not much to remove, I use an old spray bottle of armor all armor plate, kind of cleaning wax.
Sometimes even a dry cotton rag is enough.

I've used the SuperClean to clean a set of rims a few years ago. It didn't agree with the factory black paint on my Excel rims. Fortunately some Turtle Wax rubbing compound and a lot of elbow grease returned the rims to their original glory.

Sounds like you need a cleaner chain lube. I like Bel Ray, but a couple others are also supposed to be very clean. DuPont makes one that's relatively cheap at Walmart.

Bel-Ray Super Clean Chain Lube to cut down on any mess to begin with, and WD-40 to clean it up.

I've used Low Odor Mineral Spirits and a rag, it removes any and all lube, dirt, road tar, etc. No harm to the wheel finish. Afterward, I might hit them with something like Honda Polish.

Wash bike then WD on a cloth & wipe it off, been using it for years, I ride 12 months of the year & wash my bikes every week with no problems.

Pledge works better than anything else that I have tried for over 30 years.
