Cleaning phonograph discs

From: Maxine Trost <maxine>

We have a large collection of phonograph disks ranging from 10 inch
to 16 inch that need to be cleaned.  Apparently the Monks machine is
no longer available. Can anyone recommend a washer that will handle
the various sizes? Is there a recommended procedure for hand
washing? Thank you,
