I would leave the inside alone, assuming you mean the inside that is unseen in the assembled revolver. If you mean inside the visible square of the frame, then degreased steel wool will work.
Without of photo of the discolorations, it's hard to be sure what they are. Oxides come to mind. Be aware that whatever it is may affect the final appearance if you don't remove it.
