I've tried Simple Green, worked well for me with a 50/50 dilution. I only let it sit for ~30 seconds before washing off.

Also +1 for scrubbing bubbles, that stuff works wonders. Probably one of the safer products to use

I usually brush/blow off as much dirt and dust as I can when its dry, then use armor all for the plastics. as for the metal bits, i usually use what I have around me, nothing special or specific. Then I quickly rinse the engine with hose or pressure washer (cover up all the things that shouldnt get hit) and give it a nice wipedown. Definitely gonna check out the Scrubbing bubbles trick..

I personally donít like to use soaps or anything of that sort on my engine bay unless there is oils. The soaps and detergents seem to be sicky ang build up dirt quicker than usual if you decide to go that route. Just my point of view.
