If your dishwasher has an option that includes a sanitize cycle then that will work fine.

Most people on this forum would tell you to use a wet contact sanitizer like StarSan or Idophor. I personally like Starsan. Just mix some up and dunk your clean bottles in it just before bottling to sanitize them.

I'm an oven guy. It's dry, easy, and sanitizes as many bottles as you can fit at one time.

Check out Palmer for sanitation options.
