Restaurant practice of using bleach in rinsing glassware??

I have noticed occasionally a faint smell of bleach on water glasses in some restaurants. A waiter friend told me that it is a common practice to add some liquid bleach to the rinsewater as a disinfectant. I really can't stand the smell of bleach and always politely ask for another glass. I was wondering if all restaurants do this? Is there a non-smelly alternative?TIA,Jon in NYC
