dirty engine

I'm looking for a safe and easy way to clean the exterior engine, all the hoses, belts, etc.
Can I just rinse it safely not allowing any water to get into the air filter?
I've never had to clean a motor that had so much electrical and computerized mechanics built into it..

I wipe stuff down on a regular basis using a clean cloth & silicon spray.
Tire & wheel foam works good also - just spray it on.
The owner's manual shows what should be covered & it mentions the Ford engine cleaner - I bet it works good..
