I will never use k-meta on my corker either. It's a great sanitizer but it's also very corrosive and is the very reason people have rust issues with their corkers. I spray mine with alcohol and then push a paper towel with a bit of alcohol on it through the corker.
Yeah i do the same thing - Dan is not kidding about k-meta being VERY corrosive to metal.
I had a corkidor with tubing in it - I had a clamp on one of the hoses - from the fumes of the corkidor the metal in the clamp corroded away so bad there was hardly anything left of it.
