I saw this video and it looked like a time saver. Is it ok to do it that way?

I will be bottling my first batch this coming friday. I am using dextrose but otherwise this video is basically exactly what I had planned to do. The only real difference is that I have already cleaned my bottles and was going to just run them thru the dishwasher, no detergent, for a rinse and heat dry cycle to sanitize...

Many on here use the heat cycle to sanitize. But the rinse or wash water doesn't get up inside the bottle very well. The cycling spray wand isn't designed for that. I prefer my vinator & bottle tree on a chair to my left. Round short table in front of me for capping,& an old 12 pack cooler on the floor below the fermenter stand to my right. Everything in arms reach & I can sit in a chair & be comfortable.
