I voted 100-500, but that's 45s not LPs.

Me too -- 100-500, but 45s as well. I've cleaned boxes of filthy 45s until my hand is cramped up ---- but it's worth it! Wink

My dad is a rabid collector, too. When I was growing up, we would wash stacks of them in the sink with mild soapy water, then use soft towels to dry them (never wiping labels). We've probably washed over 30,000 records this way. Mom used to wash, dad would rinse, and I would dry. It was quality family time, for sure.

Perhaps up to 30 LP's and 10 to 15 45's. It all depends how dirty they are and when I start. Especially when I start, after all, I want time to play them that same day.

I clean records as I obtain/listen to them. Unless I get a couple 45s or 78s on the same day that I'm anxious to listen to it's rearely more than 1.

I usually clean a record just before playing it. So I guess just one is my answer.

At the most maybe 5 LP's back to back in one session.
Never checked the time it takes but I think it might be close to 15 or 20 minutes to rinse, scrub, rinse, and dry.
Then onto the table they go!
