cleaning under hood

Just curious if anyone cleans under the hood and how to do it. I am a little nervous after reading up on the AIP system. My wife has a sienna with 115,000 miles on it. Always open up the hood once or twice a year and spray degreaser everywhere and then wash off with the hose. Engine still looks new...

I use lots of Simple Green and just hose pressure. I don't like to use a ton of water pressure with all the components under the hood. I know some people go nuts about spraying Simple Green on the engine block, but I've never had an issue in 10+ years.
