Engine compartment detailing - How?

How do you guys keep you engine compartments so clean? How can this be done safely without messing anything up in there! I should get my car next week and this board has been very helpful. I feel that with what I've learned here I can keep the car looking show room perfect .... on the outside and the interior. But the engine compartment? How do you do that without killing yourslf with a toothbrush! Can you direct me to a DIY on this? Thanks!

That was just what I was looking for! Now I feel I can keep everything showroom without resorting to a toothbrush! Thanks ... I knew there had to be some simple trick .... like WD-40. Now if the car would just get here! Estimated arrival July 13, which is a Sat. and the service department is closed on Sat. so I bet they won't let me pick it up.
