Just cover the electrical connections with cling film.
Get some all purpose cleaner, degreaser or an engine cleaning product, spray it all over, agitate with some brushes and rinse off. It might take a few goes to get it all clean
You can use a pressure washer if you're careful but I just use a hose  :D
