The Simple Green won't hurt your chain. If it is an O-Ring or X-Ring chain use a soft brush so you don't ruin the outside rubber rings. The internal lube will stay in place as long as those rings aren't compromised.
I used to use Simple Green, now I use Dawn. Dawn is cheaper and just as good for cleaning. When I am done I use a good dry chain lube. The dry chain lube will drive out the remaining water and leave a dry lubricating film behind.
Whenever I do a quick 'spray off the dust and ride' I use WD40 to drive off the remaining water.
