you'd go through around a dozen cans of brake clean to get all that crap off while you inhale the toxic mist from spraying it all over the place, and brake clean only dilutes the oil and grease so it will still continue to coat and stick to everything downstream as it runs off.

gunk emulsifies the grease and oil and it runs off with the water you spray on after it soaks into it around 10 minutes. Once the water is sprayed on and the gook rinses off it turns a milky color and becomes less sticky and doesn't evaporate quickly and stick to everything like a brake clean rinse/mess will do.

brake clean is great for rinsing off brake rotors and final cleaning of mostly clean parts before reassembly but not for a mess this big.
