<VV> engine room cleaning? (NOT degreaser)

I use a quality car wash solution.  Garden pump up sprayer full of car  
wash solution (I use No 7--used to be Dupont now something else--in the silver  
can or another mild car wash product) to spray on the engine compartment  
then follow up with clean water in the same pump up sprayer to rinse.  This  
is low pressure cleaner so you may have a few spots to touch up.  The most  
important part is that this is a gentle cleaning that will not leave spots 
or  damage sound paint and electrical connections (you may have to dry up a 
few  places).
My youngest son just used this process to clean his first car--a Chevy  
Cobalt--with 60K.  The engine compartment came out looking display room  fresh.
