OK, so I googled Virkon S.  Some talk about it being the sterilizing pink stuff mixed with water, the fumes can go up your nose.

In my wine kit, there comes a pink powder that is used for sterilizing the wine apparatus, watch out if it goes up your nose, I wear a mask.  I can bet it is the same stuff, but I think this in the wine kit goes by a different name.  Hmmm....some food for thoughts here.  Have a wonderful and great day, Cindi

There are strange things done in the midnight sun by the men who moil for gold.  The Arctic trails have their secret tales that would make your blood run cold.  The Northern Lights have seen queer sights, but the queerest they ever did see, what the night on the marge of Lake Lebarge, I cremated Sam McGee.  Robert Service

Wine stuff is potasium metabisulfate. It generates sulfur diokside. Its duty is kill the yeast, not you.
