Ive allways made my own receipe of blue shine, you can pretty much use anything i guess as long as you rinse quickly.

Yeah simple green will be just fine, it smells a lot but that's it. Just rinse completely.

I usually use Simple Green for the engine bay and wheel wells and the underbody( when I go that far) , the stuff is pretty damn good at getting about anything off .

....to bad it smells like a old ladies perfume

Well you want to clean it somewhat man. Otherwise you get buildup in there which can eventually lead to problems/loss of performance. Not saying you need to detail it, but at least spray it down with a hose good when you clean your car.
