Cleaning Engine?

Hello, everyone. I am new here.

I've had my 2008 mustang GT for about 2 years, but I'm just now getting in to upgrading it and keeping it as clean as possible.

Underneath my hood is not as clean as I would like for it to be.

Is there anything I can use to clean this area?

Thanks!

you can buy engine cleaner from auto zone and spray the engine down with it, just dont use pressurized water with it. i would however cover up any electrical parts like the battery, alternator, fuse box etc. idk much about the 4.6 but if they have a distributor cover that up as well.

one thing i have done to get a bit of a good shine in the bay also is spray some tire shine foam on a slightly warm engine and let it sit for about 15 mins then start it and let it bake almost on there and to me it always gives it that pop
