Cold Weather BP Shooting

I know BP builds up in the barrel as it's shot and the barrel needs swabbed every couple rounds (I swab mine after three rounds).

What do you use in cold weather. Normaly I use warm soaky water or TC's mixture.

Both freeze. I was shooting yesterday and it was right around 0*. Its a pain to shoot three rounds and head for the house to swab the barrel, then back out side for another three rounds.

Is there a cold weather BP barrel lube that can be used to swab a barrel in sub zero temps??
