Default How do you clean under the hood?

I'm about to clean the engine but shy away from touching the insulating material that is under the hood. I've cleaned the engine many times with the spray on products, never saw anything for the insulation. Any suggestions?

Good question... On my stock hood I just removed mine!

Give the insulation a light spray with an all purpose cleaner, wait a few minutes, then spray it out with a garden hose. Afterwards either blow it out with compressed air, or just leave the hood open for a while so the water can run out of it. I have used both P21S Total Auto Wash and Meguiars D103 All Purpose Cleaner Plus to safely clean the under hood insulation.

I occasionally hose mine off with garden hose and plain water. Then leave the hood open until it dries.

Look at replacing the factory hoodliner with this! It is an excellent product and it cleans easily and looks 1000x better.
