How to clean oil coated plastic?

I have a plastic intake manifold that I want to clean up. It has a lot of oil residue on it that I want to get rid of. What should I use that on it that won't eat into the plastic, but works well without scrubbing a lot, or at all?

best natural product to use for grease... Simply Green! .. (one of the best products for cleaning your engine actually.. coated with WD40 after of course.)

Otherwise you'll have to use soapy water... (a mild detergant)
