Better is best

It pays to pay a couple of bucks more for a good lube.

Put a rag in the palm of your hand and grab the chain (without the engine running of course), and pull the chain through the rag by turning the rear tire with your other hand.

Then, spinning the wheel with one hand and spraying with the other, spray the lube onto the INSIDE of the chain. That way, when you ride, centrifugal force helps push the lube through all parts of the chain and can also move out some of the finer grit.

When pulling the chain through the rag be sure to turn the tire in a direction that will take your hand AWAY from the rear sprocket - not towards it. That can be a very painful and expensive lesson (not that I've done it but know people who have).
