Does anyone know how i go about cleaning my engine compartment (inc. engine and other parts)

Ive just been looking at Chewy's pic of his engine bay and it looks niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice!


Ive heard a couple of ways that involve just giving it a quick spray of engine cleaner (autoglym) and then just jet spraying rinse. Obviously leave a couple of hours to dry then "bobs your uncle"

What do you guys reckon?

Cheers
