you don't need much fluid for 250 records

BTW, my personal rule of thumb is to NEVER, EVER, UPON RISK OF A RUINED RECORD use alcohol to clean records. IIRC rubbing alcohol (ethanol) dissolves some of the chemical softeners and / or other chemical components in the vinyl mix. Alcohol is not nearly as effective as a simple dishwashing liquid solution.
I know this is a hot topic. Not trying to start a flame war, but that's just my opinion.
I agree that steam / distilled water is the ideal rinse. Steam is another source for distilled water. It gets applied without a brush or other applicator so there's nothing to contaminate the clean water.
For actual cleaning, I use the DiscDoctor system that's designed for vacuum record cleaning machines like the HW-16.5. I haven't found anything that is better, and the DD brushes seem to be very good.
