You can buy Engine Degreaser in a spray can. I'm also familiar with the stuff Chrysler dealers use. I'm sure other dealers have similar stuff. It comes in 5 gallon pails, you put some in a spray bottle, and mist it on the grease. It does not work if you pour it on the grease; gotta be sprayed. Works faster too if the engine is still a little warm. After a few minutes you hose it off. Pressure washer is better if you have one.
If the engine is running, don't worry about a little water in the intake tube. You'll get the same thing from driving in the rain. It will get slowly drawn into the engine and go harmlessly out the tail pipe.
