Cleaning up engine compartment?

What is best to use to clean up engine compartment? Not really dirty but I want to spruce it up.

The trick is keeping it clean.

I take great joy in wiping off my engine.

  • A heavy foaming Degreaser
  • vinyl & rubber care spray
  • Resin polish
  • Lots of tooth brushes of different size and small fibre towels
  • Elbow grease
  • The feeling of satisfaction after you've cleaned your bay for sake of pure passion. That bit costs nothing
