In Ammonia
When you combine bleach and ammonia, the two react to form many toxic products, including chloramine, dichloramine, nitrogen trichloride and hydrazine. But, if the reaction goes through all the way, it forms non-toxic nitrogen. The equation is as followed:
NH3+NaOCl --> NH2Cl+NaOH
NH2Cl+NaOCl --> NHCl2+NaOH
NHCl2+NaOCl --> NCl3+NaOH

NH3+NH2Cl+NaOH --> N2H4+NaCl+H2O

N2H4+2NH2Cl --> 2NH4Cl+N2

I would not recommend it unless you have proper safety equipment, a fume hood and are doing it under supervision of a experienced chemist.
