Washing your plane

Hello all.
Im about to 200hrs for the year on my cherokee, and she is in bad need of a wash. Shes dirty and oily.
What are you guys using to wash/degrease your planes? Can I use a power washer safely?( assuming I point it front to back, and dont hammer it.)
Can I use a car wash brush? What chemicals? Separate degreaser, or is there an all in one that works good?
Also, Id like to clean the engine compartment.......any suggestions.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
