Common yes, although I have no clue if it's the most effective.From Techniques in Home Wine Making it says Potassium & sodium metabisulfite are the most widely used & most effective sanitizing agents for winemaking applications. I can't shake a glass carboy for 10 minutes, I am going to rinse, walk away, come back rinse again. I think this should work too.
No need to shake the carboy. Add K-meta water, swirl it around, drain the carboy, then let it set for 10 minute. The K-meta evaporates, producing gaseous SO2.
