I use a device called a Label Saver which is 2 circular pieces of clear plastic (holes in the center where a threaded rod passes thru with handles on each end). There is a groove machined in each side of each plastic disc where rubber o-rings sit to seal off the label. After the wash and rinse I use a regular vacum cleaner (with a soft brush attachement) that is vented outside with the clothes dryer vent.

A Monks - but it's difficult to justify the cost for the average collector.

I use the basic Nitty Gritty that does a fairly decent job. The record shop that I frequent uses the VPI and there's no comparison. I'd spring for the VPI if I have the dough. I'd have to stop buying vinyl for a few months and that'll never happen.

I use a VPI 16.5, which I bought new about 10 years ago. My actual record cleaning is done with the Disc Doctor cleaning systems, I just use the machine to vacuum off the fluid.
I recomend both the VPI and the Disc Doctor brushes and fluid.

I second vinyl1. I use the same machine and Disc Doctor brushes and fluid.

The cleaning device I have is my hands (plus some diapers); 99% of the records that I clean are 45s, and I know it's easier to do them by hand and suspect they wind up just as clean as by machine.

Yeah, my RCM is the kitchen sink.

I use the Cadence Okki Nokki with the LAST cleaning products. Everything sounds clean to me.
