The most important is to ride the bike to warm up the chain before applying, and then letting it sit for 1h for solvents to evaporate. You can also wipe off the excess. Recently I tried using gearbox oil as recommended by chain manufacturers, and you just apply it with a brush, wipe off the excess, and considering its so cheap, it does a pretty good job. Some will prefer waxes that tend to fling less, but again, warm the chain, apply and wait.
