Starting A Fishless Cycle Again

I have to recycle my 10 gallon tank in order to get it ready for fish. This is my first tank and I've only done it once before. The first time I cycled it, I did a fishless fish food cycle, and it took a reaaaaally long time. I have been researching other fishless cycling methods, but to be honest I just keep confusing myself.
I was thinking of using pure ammonia and a bacteria in a bottle such as TSS or One & Only. Should I use the Dr. Tim's ammonia if I use One & Only?
Any other ammonia brands that are safe to use in a cycle?
I would just like to shorten my cycling time from last time, which took around a month, but I'm a little lost
Any suggestions?

A month is pretty normal. That's usually what it's taken me every time unless I've added established media.

What method did you use to cycle?

Also, is it really safe to add fish right after using TSS?
