Which is why I make up home made sanitiser from the recipe by CJJ Berry in his "First Steps in Wine Making" book.
It's just 5 crushed campden tablets and 1 teaspoon of citric acid all dissolved in a pint of water. I keep it in a hand spray and after everything has been washed and rinsed, I just spray liberally allowing for 2 or 3 minutes of contact time.
I also just squirt some of it into my airlocks. It's not got anything in it that would harm a wine or affect taste etc and it's a zillion times cheaper than buying something special or even wasting perfectly good drinking vodka.....
