Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get the dried coolant off of aluminum and various parts of the engine bay?

SC Intercooler outlet line broke.

The coolant outlet line burst and spilled coolant all over the driver side portion of the engine bay. It was repaired at the dealership and washed but it still reeks of coolant.

I have read that dried coolant on aluminum etches the finish. Any suggestions much appreciated.
