Mine is a dusty mess - can't imagine the time it would take to seal things up and give it a good wash. Not sure my back and arm can take the abuse.

Some great examples of engine bays here. Especially love the BMW Performance air intake on cvx5832's ride.

I don’t seal it and I clean it every time I clean the car. I use a nozzle with the built-in soap dispenser, spray it from a distance and let the soap do the work. I rinse it, dry it and unless you have bare wires in the engine bay it’s really not a problem.

Never seen that done before. I prefer to see the colours of my washer fluid. Some months pink, some months blue some months purple. Haha.
