I've always used a good quality chain lube.. Maxima Chain Wax has been my favorite, mostly because I have some..

If you get to a bicycle shop, grab a can of stuff called White Lightning Clean Ride.. I haven't used it, but have been told by others that it's way better than Chain Wax.. Works on the same principle, but is supposed to be cleaner.. As soon as my chain wax supply goes down, I'm going to make the change over to the White Lightning stuff.

Dupont Teflon lube great stuff. Lowes carries it and according to the article Ace and True Value hardware stores.
