    engine bay cleaning

    hey guys. first of all sorry if this is in the wrong forum

    BUT..

    i need to clean my engine bay. i've noticed that it is getting grimier and grimier. one of my friends with a black bugeye recommended getting it steam cleaned, but he also said that it doesn't completely get everything off and he's still living with a moderately dirty engine bay. so:

    what's a good/effective substance to clean my engine bay with? i need something that'll safely get the grime off and get it back to a nice shine. someone else recommended windex; is this okay/effective?
    thanks in advance~

    simple green, air compressor if you have it, tooth brush, old rags, elbow greese, then put a protectant or something on it, i use poorboys natural look. I am going to be getting CD2 engine detailer, some of the guys on autopia rave about the stuff.

    you can also use a hose if you are careful and wrap air filter/ electronics.

    +1 on Simple Green. I use a hose without any wire wrapping - not a single problem doing this in over 15 years.
