In this grid there are five mixed-up words, shuffled only vertically. Can you find them all?

My answer is this (I found it without seeing the other answer first).
It is fairly easy to match the second column letters correctly to the first column letters, as there are
only two vowels which must match with the d and h, and then the only possibility for the w is wh. So you have wh, sp, st, and either du/ho or do/hu.
The v is the only consonant in the third column, and so one of do/hu or du/ho must be followed by the v, the other by a vowel. This means you must have huv or duv, and duvet is as far as I can tell the only possibility. The rest then follows fairly easily.
I think I've found one answer
