Default What's the best way to clean the engine compartment under the hood?

Say you are going to a meetup and want to show off your clean engine compartment.

Everything is pretty hard to get at.

What have people done (aside from taking to the pros)?

Any mild cleaner will do a good job. Spray the engine first with a mild cleaner, brush any stuborn dirty area's then rinse it off, done! Very important that you do this when the engine is cool

I once saw a guy pour water on a red hot turbo...it was quite spectacular.
