water dripping from evaporator

At the end of the a/c season last year I noticed water coming from the furnace. I opened it up and saw water dripping from the coil. I went to Home Depot and bought some foaming coil cleaner and cleaned it a few times but it still dripped a bit. The foaming coil cleaner slowed the dripping but at the end of the season it was still dripping a bit. Can someone recommend a good coil cleaner, maybe a concentrate that I could mix and then use on the coil. I would like to clean it before the a/c season using some kind of cleaner and then rinse it with water so as not to let the cleaner dry on the coils.

I like to rinse them to make SURE the coil is draining properly along with the drain line. The crud washed off the coil can plug the drain hole or line. Then it overflows and blows the circuit board.
