I don't know of a liquid solution. What always worked for me was emery cloth, 1500 grit or higher .
I don't always carry cock & lock but when I do, I choose Glock

It's not advisable to constantly keep cleaning the powder burns on the front of cylinder as this will increase BC gap over time especially when abrasive materials is used in cleaning. A big BC gap will give these ill effects: 1) more spitting from sides, 2) increase flame cutting of the top strap of frame and, 3) lowers velocity of bullet.

I use my usual CLP (Outers, SafariLand or Ballistol). Nilalagyan ko ang front ng cylinder, let stand for a few minutes tapos brush-off using an old toothbrush then punas. Nothing abrasive. The cylinder-forcing cone gap in my more than 50 years old Model 15-3 is just enough to squeeze through a folded fresh paper bill.
