You could try a 1% solution of sodium metabisulphite, this is sometimes used to sterilise flasks for brewing and wine making, and seems to be pretty effective.

1% Sodium met. is a good sterilizer but needs a lot of rinsing. Many home-brewers use either Iodophor or StarSan. As StarSan (a food-grade acid-based sanitizer) tends to leave a residue, I go for iodophor. It's claimed effective at 12.5ppm titrable iodine with a 60second contact time. I use about a couple of capfulls (10ml) in 25litre water.
Have a link about the pros and cons of various sterilization procedures.
